We’re excited to join partners around the world in supporting International “What Matters to You?” Day!
International “What Matters to You?” Day started in Norway in 2014, with the goal of encouraging meaningful conversations between patients, caregivers, families and their health care providers. It's a simple question that can have a big impact on the quality of care. When providers have a conversation about what really matters to the people they care for, it helps ensure that health care is aligned with patient preferences, builds trusting relationships between patients, families and their health care providers and advances person- and family-centred care.
Here in BC, the provincial government has proclaimed today as “What Matters to You?” Day and we’re asking you to share your stories with us. We’re also taking this opportunity to acknowledge the love, care and compassion our communities are demonstrating during these challenging times; these are the stories that need attention and can inspire action.
Share Your Stories
Join us to help spread kindness and compassion by sharing your stories of when you were asked what mattered by a care provider or when, as a care provider, you asked what mattered to a patient, family or caregiver.
Use and follow the hashtags #WMTYBC and #WMTY20 on Twitter or tell us your story – we’ll be sharing them today and beyond. Our hope is that these stories will inspire you to take the time to ask someone, “What matters to you?”
