What Matters to You?

Ask What Matters. Listen to What Matters. Do What Matters.

What Matters to You? Day is about encouraging more meaningful conversations with patients and families who receive healthcare, and with staff, physicians and volunteers who provide it. It is also about having important conversations about what matters to us during difficult times.

Asking what matters helps healthcare teams to further understand what is important to their patients. Providing care that focuses on the needs of patients and families leads to stronger partnerships, improved treatment and health outcomes, patient safety, and an overall better care experience. But it’s also important to have these conversations with our own families, healthcare teams and colleagues so they know what’s important to us.

Discovering what matters most to our patients, ourselves and our loved ones helps all of us recognize and take action to support the people we care for, as well as take better care of ourselves.

Please join us on June 9th, and every other day, to ask What Matters to You?. Let us know on social media #wmtyAB.
