One Province, One Healthcare System: An Evening with Dr. Verna Yiu

January 22, 2019
5:30 pm to 7:30 pm MST
Alberta Children’s Hospital, Auditorium (4th floor)
2888 Shaganappi Trail NW, Calgary, AB T3B 6A8

After overwhelming demand for the CCHL webinar session titled “One Province, One Healthcare System: A decade of healthcare transformation in Alberta” with Dr. Yiu on September 17, 2018 we are pleased to be able to host Dr. Yiu in person for a repeat session.

Nearly a decade has passed since Alberta Health Services was created. Deemed a risky experiment by some at the time, there is now mounting evidence province-wide integration of services across the healthcare continuum is an enabler of improved quality, safety and financial sustainability.

AHS is strengthening partnerships, standardizing best practices and driving innovation, making Alberta a national and international leader. Province-wide integration is being leveraged to build workplace culture, enhance patient safety and operational efficiencies.

Featured Speaker: Dr. Verna Yiu, President and CEO, Alberta Health Services

Dr. Verna Yiu is a longtime frontline care provider and healthcare administrator who has served as President and CEO of Alberta Health Services (AHS), Canada’s first and largest province-wide health system, since January 2016.

A firm believer in the power of relationships and collaboration, Dr. Yiu has used her leadership skills to bring together clinicians, researchers, policy-makers, patients and families in order to drive continuous learning and patient-focused improvements in healthcare outcomes and experiences. She continues to practice as a pediatric nephrologist and is a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Alberta.
