Maya Pajevic has been a patient partner for a decade, contributing to different aspects of the healthcare system. She believes that person-centred care starts in the heart, that engaging with different stakeholders, especially those with lived experience, does not only result in a more robust and resilient system, but also a safer one. Maya graduated from Mount Royal University in 2023 with a degree in Information Design and a minor in Social Innovation. Currently she is the communications lead for two CBI-Health-led programs, which look at meaningful employment opportunities for those that identify as having a disability in Alberta. When not working or advocating, Maya can be found on the hiking trail or ski hill, and she enjoys endless snuggles with her dog Dyna.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative. The purpose of this interdisciplinary journal is to raise the consciousness and deepen the intellect of the humanistic relationship in the rehabilitation sciences.
