South Zone: Day 1 - Meet Jill
Meet Jill from Foremost, Alberta.
Jill first joined the Provincial Patient and Family Advisory Group in 2014, and has been involved with many projects provincially and in the South Zone since that time.
How would you describe what you do to someone interested in this position?
Because I live some distance from any healthcare facility, I do not have the opportunity to do many hands-on things. Mostly I am involved in numerous meetings via Skype or Zoom. I just listen and give my view of what is being discussed from a patient and family viewpoint.
What is one exciting thing you would like to share about this position?
I was involved with ConnectCare from the design phase right to implementation in the Edmonton Zone. In August I was asked to be part of the Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations Network Summer Learning Series. This was a national series and Alberta's part was on big data. I spoke about ConnectCare and what benefits it would provide for Albertans.
Thank you, Jill, for your contributions to make AHS better. All that you do has a huge, positive impact on patient and family centred care!.
