Connect Care From the Patients’ Perspective

Speakers: Connie Stuhl, Lona Leiren, Jennifer Rees, Barb Kathol, Kim Kisko

Description: This presentation explores Connect Care from the patient perspective. Patients hear a lot about Connect Care, but may not understand its processes and how it has been developed and why. The presenters provide a “lay” background on Connect Care and its implementation in Alberta so far. They describe how Connect Care impacts patient care, and how clinical and research environments have changed since Connect Care has been implemented.

Land Acknowledgment

The Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit operates on and acknowledges the lands that are the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. This includes the Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We make this acknowledgment as a reaffirmation of our shared commitment towards reconciliation, and as part of AbSPORU’s mandate towards fostering health system transformation.
