On June 3, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) Patient and Family Leadership Council met for the first time to create a framework for advancing the voices of the patients and families within our health system. Established to find new and creative ways to partner and advance the SHA’s Philosophy of Patient and Family Centred Care, members were selected for the leadership council from across Saskatchewan and reflect the diversity of the province.
“There is an ethical responsibility with being here today,” said Brenda Andreas, SHA Patient and Family Advisor. “It is not an easy fix, it is looking at what we do every day in every way.”
This is a new era of patients as partners every step of the way. The SHA Patient and Family Leadership Council is committed to co-designing projects, policies and strategies together.
