Check Out Our New Resources Portal!

We’re excited to announce that the new resources portal is now up and running on our website! This section was completely revamped to make our resources – as well as useful resources created by peer organizations – easily accessible for health care and patient partners.

We’ve divided the resources by topics and types, and created a new search system which makes it easy to quickly find what you need. We also added a few new resources, and are working on creating several others that will soon be added.

Your feedback is very welcome! Send us an email or message on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn to let us know your thoughts on the new portal and other resources you’d like to see added.

Learning to Become an Effective Change Agent 

“I was looking forward to attending my first Change Agent workshop! As a part-time, mature student new to the field of Population Health & Social Policy, I wanted to know what makes effective, sustainable change in patient-centred care and learn new skills and processes for long-term change.”

Read his blog post to find out what our patient partner Chad Dickie learned at a Being an Effective Change Agent workshop in October.

The Evolution of Patient-Centered Care and the Meaning of Co-Design

If the co-design workshop we promoted a few days ago got you curious about this new approach that’s based in partnership, this article by Tiffany Christensen provides great information on how co-design is being applied to patient-centred care.
