Are you frustrated in your work?
Have you been trying to provide good care but it just seems like there are a million barriers?
Watch Dr. Colleen Varcoe (PhD, RN), Professor in UBC’s School of Nursing, for a unique insight into how to deal with your frustration head-on.
Integrating a health equity approach into the care you provide is a win-win-win:
- your clients, especially those facing the biggest challenges, will be better served
- you as the health care provider will deliver care that is more effective and acceptable, especially for your “complex” clients, and be more satisfied with your work
- your organization and the health care system will be better aligned with quality of care goals, and with a social justice approach
