Soon this page will highlight a collection of inspirational videos and narratives that focus on Albertans as they share the story of their remarkable health care journey. Our office hears about how Albertans experience the health care system. Their stories highlight positive experiences while others share the challenges some people have faced in getting the right care at the right time. All experiences are important to hear so that the health care system can continually improve to meet the needs of all Albertans.
“Telling stories can provide the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of one’s experiences and oneself. They help people make sense of the world--life’s experiences, dilemmas and hardships. Stories can educate, inspire and build rapport.”
