Our vision is a health system intentionally designed in partnership between citizens and other stakeholders to achieve the best possible experiences and outcomes for all Albertans.
IMAGINE Citizens is an Alberta-based network of people and community-oriented partners that offers us, as health citizens, collaboration pathways to deliver person-centred healthcare.
“I just assumed my family doctor was aware.” This is a common assumption amongst Albertans who have needed care outside of that received from their primary care physician. Unfortunately, this is often not the case due to a lack of continuity of information flow between hospitals and primary care providers. The good news is that a dynamic team of patients, the Patient Transitions Resources team, are working hard
Amongst humans, storytelling has been a practice and an art for thousands of years. Early societies transferred their histories, aspects of their cultures and their knowledge to younger generations through stories, and some Indigenous peoples still do. Storytelling is also a powerful way to gain the attention of others; the life of the party is often a great storyteller, for example, as are some successful politicians and teachers.
