AGM and “The Power of Storytelling to Improve Healthcare” with Dr. Verna Yiu (May 18)

Members, we look forward to seeing you at the annual general meeting: 11:30 a.m. to noon.

Dr. Verna Yui, Alberta Health Services President and CEO, will begin her presentation at noon.

As healthcare in the 21st century charts new frontiers led by breathtaking advancements in technology, there is a danger that health systems could lose their focus on patients and families and be blinded to their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Dr. Verna Yiu will discuss how Alberta Health Services (AHS) uses storytelling to help those working in healthcare recognize the power of relationships and understand how one-on-one connections are crucial to achieving outstanding patient outcomes and experiences. Dr. Yiu’s presentation will include examples of AHS multimedia storytelling. Come and learn how you, as a communicator, can include the power of stories in your own outreach.
