2018 Patient Experience Awards

This year’s Patient Experience Awards once again highlight the focused and important work underway in the province to consistently consider the patient, resident, client and family voice and make a positive impact on patient experience.

Four initiatives were selected to receive the HQCA’s 2018 Patient Experience Award and we encourage you to read about the recipients here.

For the third year, the HQCA, in partnership with our Patient and Family Advisory Committee (PFAC), held the awards program to recognize and celebrate initiatives that improve the patient experience in accessing and receiving healthcare services.

Applications spanned all corners of the province and came from a wide variety of care settings. They reflected the diverse healthcare needs of Albertans, and many initiatives specifically considered how to improve the patient, resident, client and family experience for vulnerable populations.

As part of this award, the winners will receive funding to participate in a patient experience, quality, or patient safety education event. They will also have the opportunity to share more about their program through a public webcast on June 1, 2018 at 12 p.m. MDT. Details regarding the webcast will be posted to this page closer to the broadcast date and if you would like to receive an alert about this event, please sign up to receive our HQCA news & quarterly newsletter updates.

Please join us in congratulating this year’s 2018 HQCA Patient Experience Award recipients.
