Screening of “Falling Through the Cracks: Greg’s Story”

  • This event has passed.

$10

Infoway and the Canadian Patient Safety Institute are pleased to support Health Arrows / Greg’s Wings Projects through a special screening of Falling Through The Cracks: Greg’s Story during e-Health 2018.

Greg Price was 30 years old when he began developing health issues. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and ultimately succumbed to a blood clot. Throughout Greg’s journey, there were a number gaps in his continuity of care leading to delays in treatment, which may have contributed to his untimely passing. The Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) launched an investigation into Greg’s story, which resulted in a report recommending 18 changes be implemented to better deliver care – including a province-wide personal patient portal and e-referral system.

The Price family and their health advocacy organization, Greg’s Wings, have created the film, which is directed by Dean Bennett (director of CBC’s Heartland series). This impactful, short film (29 minutes) about Greg Price’s journey through the health care system is intended to inspire positive change and improvement in the health care system.

Doors open at 1830. Show time is at 1900, followed by a panel discussion and a Q&A.

Tickets for the screening are $10. Click here to purchase tickets.
