“What Matters to You?” Day started in Norway in 2014 with the aim of encouraging and supporting more meaningful conversations between people who provide health and social care and the people, families, and carers who receive that care. What began as a national effort has gained momentum as an international movement, with over 15 countries participating in this year’s event.
Everyone wants our health care system to provide good quality services, at the right time and place. Patients, like health care providers, have a vested interest in improving health care services, both as an end user and taxpayer. Engaging those patients to work alongside health care providers to improve the system is called “Patient Engagement”.
