Saskatchewan Union of Nurses / Health Innovation Summit Steering Committee
2017 Health Innovation Summit - Wed Nov 15, 2017 - Regina - Queensbury Convention Centre - 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
We are inviting our valued professional colleagues and partners in healthcare, community stakeholders, their staff, associates, members and friends to attend our summit on November 15th in Regina.
Change provides us with the opportunity to do something amazing, to seize the moment, to be leaders, and to make a difference. At a time of transformational change in Saskatchewan healthcare, we have before us an opportunity like none other to transform our healthcare experience. We have an opportunity to be leaders in our own healthcare and to develop an environment that supports and grows innovation while keeping the patient's needs and experiences at the centre of care. How do we achieve this? By supporting a large-scale shift in mindset to look differently at ways to identify what is working, and what changes are possible. We do this by listening to the voices that make up our communities and inspire improvement in the healthcare experience - the patients and their families who seek answers and comfort in their healthcare system, the professionals who see the system in action every day, and the business and community leaders who continue to make this province strong.
The 2017 Health Innovation Summit: Inspiring Tomorrow's Healthcare is a day dedicated to bringing a group of stakeholers - with a unique cross-section of expertise, community involvement and experiences within the healthcare system - together to identify the preferred future of health care in our province.
