Patient and Family Centred Care Week

Thank you for joining us to celebrate Patient and Family Centred Care Week. Take a look at what people have shared and come back next year for more opportunities.

Patient and Family Centred Care Week held November 2-6, 2020, empowers individuals, teams, sites and zones to celebrate our partnerships with patients, clients, residents and their families.

We would love to hear from you leading up to, and during our official celebration week! See how you can get involved and help us celebrate by checking out some ideas below:

Tell us about the small things that have made a difference to you during the pandemic.

Provide us with feedback on patient and family centred care Alberta Health Services.

Have any ideas? Healthcare delivery has changed due to the pandemic, leading to new ways or ideas for receiving and delivering care. Let us know about these new ideas you have experienced as a patient or delivered as a healthcare provider.

Say thanks to healthcare providers or colleagues.

What is Patient and Family Centred Care?

Patient and Family Centred Care encompasses four core concepts, including:

Respect and Dignity. We listen to and honour patient and family perspectives and choices. We include patient and family knowledge, strengths, values, beliefs, and cultural backgrounds into the planning and delivery of care.

Information Sharing. We communicate with patients and families to ensure they understand and receive timely, complete, and accurate information in order to effectively participate in care and decision making.

Participation. We build partnerships and encourage and support patients and families to participate in care and decision making at the level they choose.

Collaboration. We collaborate with patients and families in policy and program development, implementation, and evaluation.

At Alberta Health Services, our healthcare providers and colleagues take the time each and every day to get to know their patients and find out what matters to them, respect and include their patients' preferences in care planning, ensure their patients have the information they need and support them, and encourage them to be full partners in their care and decision making.

Share your gratitude and thanks now to the healthcare providers or fellow colleagues for their focus on patient and family centred care shown throughout their work at AHS each and every day.

I would like to say thanks to all those that have worked so hard to put patients and families back together. It is so vital for patients to have their support systems with them to help ask questions, navigate the system and advocate for their safety.
