Capital Health’s annual Quality Summit took place June 6, 2013 selecting our project as a winner of the “Quality Award” in an online vote. This annual event celebrates and recognizes Capital Health’s commitment to ensure quality people-centred care. An initiative being led by Benjie Nycum under the direction of Program Leader for Capital District Mental Health Program’s Recovery and Integration, Dorothy Edem, the five pilot projects aim at culture change in the various components of the Recovery and Integration Program.
Pilot projects are a great way to invite experimental change without having to commit entirely to the change until it has been properly evaluated. Change is happening at a staggering rate in Mental Health. Changing the way teams work together to adapt to these changes and improve patient centred care is the main goal of these experimental projects.
