Kari Wutzke is one of several members of the public lending their voices and perspectives to the design of a new Interior Health person-centred website.
Although her participation in this project began a year ago, she has a lifetime of experience as a patient and someone who uses InteriorHealth.ca to get health information and access services.
“I have lived with chronic pain for almost as long as I can remember, ever since a car accident when I was 12,” says Kari. “I first became interested in health-related websites as a patient looking for answers. As an adult I became very involved in pain-related support groups. I eventually moved into coaching others dealing with similar challenges and advocating for positive changes in health services.”
