Webinar: “What Matters to You?” Day Preparation

We’ve encouraged health care providers and patients to have “What matters to you?” conversations each and every day over the past year.

As we gear up for the celebration, we’d like to invite you to attend a lunch-time webinar where patients and health care providers will share their stories and experiences with starting conversations and building genuine partnerships. Join us to learn more about how “What Matters to You?” has impacted relationships between patients and care providers, and how it can be implemented within care!

Quality Café: Ensuring Inclusive, Appropriate Health Care for LGBTQ2S+ Seniors

Many of today’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and two-spirit (LGBTQ2S+) seniors have experienced a lifetime of discrimination based on their sexual orientation and/or gender identity and expression. Many LGBTQ2S+ seniors are feeling anxious about the increased vulnerability and loss of independence that can accompany aging. Many fear that they will need to hide their sexual orientation or moderate their gender expression in some way to receive quality health care care in primary care, home care and residential care settings. In this Quality Café we will look at some of the experiences of LGBTQ2S+ seniors and explore ways that we can provide more affirming and inclusive care.

We hope you can join us for the virtual launch of “What Matters to You?” in 2018!

Patient Behaviour Change: Building Blocks for Success

If only the patient would take the prescribed medication, eat nutritious foods, lose weight, quit smoking – the list is lengthy. Many health problems, including some chronic diseases, result from intractable human behaviour. Rather than blame patient non-compliance, however, health care providers have come to recognize behaviour change as a complex challenge that involves not just the patient, but also clinicians and communities.

In this free, live web event from NEJM Catalyst, you’ll learn techniques for effective behaviour change, what changes are achievable for better health, and which barriers to target. Conversations about behaviour change begin with the principle that clinicians should not assume they know how to incorporate patients’ values into medical decisions. Behavioural science has yielded insights into how to increase the likelihood of sustained health – and why some changes are extremely difficult.
