Collaborating to transform
health and care in Alberta
Imagine Citizens Network is an Alberta-based network of people and community-oriented partners that offers us, as health citizens, collaboration pathways to deliver person-centred healthcare.
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.
There is an adoption problem with the concept of person-centred care (PCC). The precepts of this concept were detailed almost 30 years ago, and it has been vigorously promoted ever since. And while a commitment to PCC can be found on every Canadian health system website, it’s struggling to gain traction in what continues to be a discouragingly provider-driven healthcare system. What’s afoot? Why the crazy slow adoption of PCC?
IMAGINE Citizens has refreshed its brand to become Imagine Citizens Network (ICN)! Our new name and bold new logo will better support us in building awareness of who we are and what we’re about as we continue to grow our presence in Alberta. We are indeed a network of health citizens, community partners, health-oriented organizations and innovators aimed at transforming health and care in Alberta.
