F1: What matters to you? – experience from 4 countries

Wednesday 22 June 2022 | 15:00-16:00

Format: Presentation
Stream: Person and Family-Centred Care

A highly interactive session introducing the rapidly growing ‘What matters to you?’ (#WMTY) movement. This approach has become an international force for improvement and also been shown to effectively help focus efforts and resources during a pandemic. The WMTY conversation is reframing the relationship between caregivers, patients and families, as well as reconnecting staff with their original purpose as caregivers. This session will share some of the key ingredients that have contributed to the success of this movement to-date and stories illustrating impact from participating countries. Evidence from diverse settings now shows how WMTY can drive better outcomes and wellbeing for patients as well as staff, and greater focus and efficiency/use of resources.
