There are three Working Groups available:

  • Access to Surgical Care

We’re looking for people who are committed to improving surgical care provided to Albertans. We need people from all five AHS Zones including citizens, patients and family members, hospital specialists and primary care physicians, nurses and allied health, operations and support staff and others. Members must be willing and able to work as a team to develop innovative, practical and feasible solutions to the most important problems facing our system. Members will bring their own experiences to the table but must also be willing and able to think about the provincial system as a whole. Previous experience in quality improvement would be an asset but is not essential.”

Are you a caregiver to someone with dementia?


In an effort to raise the voice of caregivers, Carers Canada and the Canadian Home Care Association are seeking friends and family members who care for a person with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias to share their experience by completing a private and secure on-line survey. The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete.

  • Feedback received from this survey will be used to inform the federal government in advancing Bill C-233, an Act respecting a national strategy for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. This Act directs the federal Minister of Health to develop and implement a comprehensive national strategy for the care of people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementias, as well as their families and caregivers.
  • Please note that the survey closes on February 5, 2018.
