The Patient, Family and Caregiver Perspective was developed by Sault Area Hospital patient and family advisors to demonstrate what meeting our strategic goals would look like for community members accessing healthcare services.
Sault Area Hospital is committed to creating an environment that actively partners with Patients, Families and Caregivers across their journey with the healthcare system. Patient, family and caregiver engagement is defined as patients, families or their representatives, and health professionals working in active partnership at various levels across the healthcare system—individual care, organizational design and governance, and system-level policy-making—to improve health and health care.
We recognize that this commitment also needs to be demonstrated informally through daily interactions such as being greeted with a smile, open communication with your healthcare team and enhancing your active involvement in your health care. The Patient, Family and Caregiver Perspective is one way that we uphold that commitment to our community.
