In these uncertain times, we must do our best to deliver care that is compassionate and person and family-centred.

Introducing yourself at the start of every encounter is a small but significant act that helps establish trust and common humanity between carer and patient or resident.

That’s why Providence Health Care is pleased to participate in the international #Hellomynameis Day on July 23rd.

The #Hellomynameis campaign was started by Dr. Kate Granger in the UK, a physician receiving treatment for terminal cancer. As a patient, she noticed the significant difference introductions by health care providers had on her experience. 

Taking part is easy – just be intentional about introducing yourself and your role in all encounters with patients, residents, families and care givers.
