Patient Advisory Group

group discussionThe Stone Centre Patient Advisory Group will further our efforts bridging the knowledge gap between physician care and patient priorities, while improving future research strives.

Advisory group mandate:

  • To help guide the Stone Centre at VGH towards what patients would like to know more about in kidney stone treatment, prevention, and research.
  • To help guide the Stone Centre personnel with obtaining funding from government agencies.
