This week's reflection

I believe the second half of one's life is meant to be better than the first half. The first half is finding out how you do it. And the second half is enjoying it.

Moving Forward in Wound Management Conference: Engaging Learners, Motivating Change, and Inspiring Action
8 September 2016
Doubletree by Hilton
16615 – 109 Avenue, Edmonton\

In partnership with members of Alberta Health Services, Covenant Health acknowledges the importance of providing continuous education opportunities for team members in the area of skin and wound care. Our goal is to improve skin and wound care practice across the continuum of care within the organization and beyond and to lead in areas of skin safety, patient and family centered care and pressure injury prevention. We recognize that we have the opportunity to shape wound care practice by raising awareness of the extent of the problem of chronic wounds, by supporting the uptake of the best available evidence to manage them and to support education, knowledge translation and mobilization to prevent wounds from developing. We are committed to developing wound care leaders to support a ripple effect throughout our programs. It has been rewarding for us to collaborate together to bring you this conference. Please take this opportunity to engage with participants, speakers and our sponsors.

Message from Our Senior Leadership Team

Lana Chivers, Senior Director Operations, Grey Nuns Community Hospital
Covenant Health is moving forward to develop the structure and mechanisms of care delivery that are needed in the area of skin and wound care. At Covenant Health we recognize that a holistic approach is our priority in caring for persons with wounds along with engaging their social support systems. Our focus is on quality, safe patient care and patient centered care. It is our role to advocate for patients in order to practice true collaboration and ensure that we focus on outcomes of relevance to patients and not just on outcomes of relevance to the healthcare system. Our commitment is to involve, enlist and engage our patients, families and systems in prevention strategies and wound management. Join us as we build capacity, advocate for resources and collaborate together to improve the care of those with wounds and those who care for wounds.
