Compassion is essential to quality health care and is a vital component of effective partnerships between patients, families and health care providers.

What do you think compassion looks like, sounds like and feels like? Do you think compassion is an essential ingredient to patient- and family-centred care?

Join this webinar to hear personal stories and experiences of compassion from a panel of patients, families and Alberta Health Services providers. Hear their definitions and descriptions of why compassion matters and how they have practiced and benefited from compassion. Take this opportunity to ask questions and share your thoughts about why compassion matters.

By participating in the webinar, you will:

  • Hear real-life examples of the impact of compassionate care from patients, families and front line providers
  • Learn practical techniques and approaches to intentionally bring compassion to everyday interactions

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
