Patient & family advisors partner with healthcare providers in many ways to provide input into policies, programs and practices that effect patient care and services.
The philosophy and behaviors of patient engagement are founded on the belief that patients and their families are integral members of the healthcare team and actively participate in all aspects of care, including as partners in planning, implementation and evaluation of existing and future care and services
Alberta Health Services wants to engage with and respectfully listen to patients and families. Having these meaningful conversations helps us practice what we value and increases our health system's safety, transparency and accountability to Albertans.
Safer Together supports patients and families in keeping themselves safe during care.
