"What Matters to You?" Day is June 6, 2017!
Ask What Matters. Listen to What Matters. Do What Matters.
Please join us and participate in a new initiative to promote meaningful conversations in BC health care, between care providers and those receiving care!
"What Matters to You?" Day started in Norway in 2014, and has grown into a global initiative, with over 500 teams in 14 countries participating in 2016. This year, for the first time, "What Matters to You?" Day is happening in BC - and we wanted you to be the first to know.

Why does it matter?
Because we believe great care begins with a question. Providing patient-centred care is important because it results in better outcomes for patients and greater satisfaction with care. “What Matters to You?” Day supports this by putting the patient voice at the centre of care, by focusing on what matters to them.
When a health care provider starts a conversation by asking what really matters to the person they are caring for, it helps them to build trust, develop empathy, and understand their patients. Ultimately, it improves the quality of care they provide.
There are lots of ways you can support "What Matters to You?" Day!
