“What matters to you?” is a simple question that can have a big
impact on care. When health professionals have a
conversation about what really matters to the people they care
for, it helps them ensure care is aligned with patient
preferences and provide more person- and family-centred
BC Renal is joining the Patient Voices Network, the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council, and
other health care organizations across the province in encouraging our staff and our network’s
kidney care providers to have “What matters to you?” conversations each and every day with
the people they support or care for. Because patients are the true experts on their own needs
and experiences, asking, listening and responding to what matters to patients is a key feature
of person- and family-centred care.
Our participation in the “What matters to you?” movement is part of our continuing commitment
to person- and family-centred care and collaborative goal-setting with patients. We encourage
you to participate too!
