Measuring What Matters
Through a series of engagement opportunities, Imagine Citizens Network, in partnership with Provincial Seniors Health and Continuing Care (PSHCC) in AHS and the University of Alberta, connected province-wide with older adults with a range of personal and caregiving experiences. The project aimed to explore what is most important for older Albertans to understand and know about AHS’s work.
Quality of life was identified as the outcome to strive for, measure, and report on.
The PSHCC team works to ensure older adults and continuing care clients receive the right care in the right place at the right time. PSHCC is developing a new strategic plan to guide their work and wanted to explore Quality Indicators that reflect a citizen perspective. The project represented a unique opportunity for older adults in Alberta to identify Quality Indicators relevant to seniors’ health and/or the continuing care sector.
