“What matters to you?” is a simple question that can have a big impact on quality of care. When providers have conversations about what really matters to patients, caregivers and families, they build meaningful relationships and advance person- and family-centred care.
On the ninth annual International "What Matters to You?" Day, the province of British Columbia has once again issued a proclamation recognizing the importance of this patient- and family-centred approach.

Share Your Stories
Sharing stories about “What Matters to You?” conversations inspires others and demonstrates the impact that these conversations can have for both patients and providers. Leading up to International “What Matters to You?” Day on June 9, we invite you to share your impact stories. Take a look at last year’s stories featured in our special edition newsletter.
Read Culturally Safe Engagement Resources
In celebration of International “What Matters to You?” Day last year, we hosted an event which asked Indigenous patient partners what mattered to them when participating in culturally safe patient engagement opportunities. Following the event we created two resources which support health care partners to put cultural safety and humility into practice when engaging with Indigenous Peoples. Download the resources.
