Apply now for the 2021 Patient Experience Awards

October 28, 2020
Health Quality Council of Alberta announces a new two-part submission process.

Applications for the 2021 Patient Experience Awards are now being accepted.

The awards were established by the Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA), in collaboration with the HQCA’s Patient and Family Advisory Committee, to recognize and help spread knowledge about initiatives that improve the patient and family experience in Alberta.

The awards are for any individual or team of healthcare workers in Alberta involved in designing and implementing an initiative that makes a positive impact on patients’ experiences in accessing or receiving healthcare services.

The application process consists of two parts: Part A and Part B. Part A, which is due by November 27, 2020, requires a 250-word summary outlining how the individual or team positively impacts specific elements of patient experience, and why you feel the initiative is deserving of the award. Two statements of support demonstrating how the nominee consistently delivers patient experience are also required.

Those who move to Part B will be contacted about a detailed summary that is due before February 28, 2021.

Full details are available on the HQCA website. If you have any questions about the application, selection process, or award, please contact HQCA at
