Sharing your patient or caregiver experience

Your experience with health care is at the centre of everything we do. As an independent and pan-Canadian organization that champions a health care system that works for patients, we learn from your experience to identify, prioritize and share with decision-makers the front-line and system-level changes that matter to patients. Please share your experience and help us further practical and meaningful solutions to improve the patient experience, and to realize a truly patient-centred culture within health care. Share multiple stories by returning to the form after you have submitted!

When thinking about your experience, consider the following questions: What am I willing to share? Or, what do I feel is too private to share?

What will my story teach those who are listening?
