One act, small or big, can lead to improvement in our health or the healthcare system. Anyone was invited to make a pledge, start a ripple, and become a Change Day Hero. On April 4, 2016, thousands united and celebrations were held across the province to celebrate our pledges for change. Way to go Alberta!

Last fall I made my Change Day Pledge, to “spend a day with a Patient Care Manager to better understand the challenges they face”. In January, I spent the day at the Cross Cancer Institute (CCI) in Edmonton. I had the pleasure of connecting with a number of managers in Surgical Services/Inpatients/Respiratory, Outpatient Department, and the Daycare Unit.

Enthusiasm, creativity and inspiration are just a few words to describe Change Day’s #PicAPledge photo contest. Photos depicted pledges and some even showed how they would follow through on thier pledge.
