Patient as Partner

As a patient, I commit to being an active partner in my care by asking questions of my health care providers that ensure they are providing care “with me”, not “to me”.

Ongoing learning

Learn at least one new thing each week, whether it be at work or in my personal life

Making a difference for a long-term care resident

I pledge to brighten up visits with my aunt, who lives in long-term care, by bringing along my dog. Seeing dogs always makes her smile.

Stopping the spread of illness

I pledge to help stop the spread of illness by practicing excellent hand hygiene and using hand sanitizer. As well, I commit to receiving the annual flu shot, and I will also take my son and husband to get their flu shots with me.

Strengthen Communication

I pledge to strengthen communication in my organization by asking questions, asking for clarification, and sharing what I learn with others.

Saskatchewan Change Day e-book launched


Thank you to everyone who supported the second annual Saskatchewan Change Day campaign!

Saskatchewan Change Day, which was organized by the Health Quality Council (HQC), was celebrated on November 5, 2015. More than 1,430 pledges to improve health and health care were made throughout the campaign – surpassing last year’s total of 1,397 pledges.

The theme of the 2015 Saskatchewan Change Day campaign was “Make Health Better Together.” Pledges focused on improving personal health, workplace health, and the health of patients, clients, and residents.

A commemorative e-book has been created to document the campaign and to share inspiring stories about some of the pledges that were made by Saskatchewan residents.
