The Cuming & Gillespie LLP Patient Experience Program is a partnership between the Department of Clinical Neurosciences and the Patient and Family Centred Care (PFCC) team. PFCC is a collaborative approach to health care, putting individuals and their families in an integral position in their care plans, ensuring that their care aligns with their priorities, preferences and values.

Following that philosophy, the Cuming & Gillespie LLP Patient Experience Program supports patient involvement in care, collects patient feedback and also facilitates a volunteer-based peer mentorship program. Kasey Aiello, Patient Liaison to Neurosciences, knows all about the importance of peer support and shares her thoughts and own experiences in Calgary Health Trust’s most recent newsletter.
