Patient Experience Awards

For the fifth year, the HQCA, in partnership with our Patient and Family Advisory Committee (PFAC), will be hosting the Patient Experience Awards program to recognize and help spread knowledge about initiatives that improve the patient experience in accessing and receiving healthcare services.

Who can apply?

These awards are for any individual or team of healthcare workers in Alberta involved in designing and implementing an initiative that made a positive impact on patients’ experiences in accessing or receiving healthcare services.

You can learn more about last year’s award recipients here.

  • $2,000 in funding to apply toward attending or hosting a patient experience, quality, or patient safety education event
