It Takes a Village: Leveraging Compassion-Friendly Environments for the People We Serve and Each Other

  • This event has passed.

November 8, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Recognizing that 1 in 5 Albertans suffer from some form of mental health illness, strategies to instill “compassion-friendly” environments to support clinicians and staff are not simply an employee benefit, but a tangible way of fulfilling a commitment to patient- and family-centred care.

By participating in this webinar, you will:

  • Learn about the movement to create mental health-friendly environments for patients and for those who serve them
  • Learn how mental health-friendly environments can help better support patients and families and health care providers
  • Understand the role of mental-health friendly environments in patient- and family-centred care

When: Wednesday, November 8, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. Pacific Time

To register: Please email

Presenter: Gordon Self, D. Min., Vice President, Mission, Ethics and Spirituality, Covenant Health

This webinar is part of Alberta Health Services’ Patient and Family Centred Care Week: Navigating Health Care with Compassion. Check PVN’s event listings for more free webinars during the week!

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.
