The Central LHIN would like to add a News Item to the TIPS page. I was not sure how to go about doing that. I have included my article below. Please let me know if and when you can post. Thank you.

 

Title: Change Day Ontario –Driving positive change in health care

 

Change Day Ontario is a part of a growing global movement that empowers individuals and teams to make small actions to collectively bring positive change to the health system.

 

You too can join the movement through your participation in Change Day Ontario. The power of the program is in the people behind it and we’re looking for people like you to join the movement. 

 

What is a pledge and who can make one? 

Anyone engaged within the health sector is invited to participate by making a pledge.

 

The pledge, and how it comes to life, is completely up to the individual. It can be anything from spending an hour in an ICU bed to gain insight into a patient experience to taking 15 minutes a week to shadow a colleague to better understand their role.

 

Why participate in Change Day Ontario?

Change Day Ontario provides an opportunity to encourage people with first-hand experience to drive the change they want to see in the health sector. By making a pledge, you have the opportunity to drive this change and bring a positive change to health care.

 

Sign up at changedayontario.ca to become an Ambassador to help lead this change and support individuals as they work to improve the patient experience, teamwork and overall happiness. Ambassadors are an integral part of making Change Day Ontario a success and supporting improvement within the health system across Ontario.  Ambassador resources are available at changedayontario.ca.

 

For more information about the Change Day campaign, and to make your pledge, please visitchangedayontario.ca.

 

The difference is you!

    Canadian Blood Services is a non-profit, charitable organization whose sole mission is to manage the blood and blood products supply for Canadians.


    As a non-profit  organization, we are responsible for utilizing each health dollar spent on blood collection in the most efficient was possible.  We track the use of blood and we’ve become more efficient at how we collect blood, allowing us to concentrate our collections on busier centres and times of day. 


    Donors from Richmond Hill are needed to ensure are hospital patients get the blood and blood products they need when they need them.  


    Please donate at Hillcrest Mall on Tuesdays & Thursdays between 4:00pm - 8:00pm, and on Fridays & Saturdays between 8:00am - 1:00pm.



    Here's my ask: we are looking for donors that could help us out during that 1st hour on Fridays until we build the regular donor base.  An extra hour means we need to collect more blood on Fridays, in preparation for the weekend demand (especially important around holiday weekends)


    So, how ‘bout it?  Would you like to Save A Life before work on a Friday?  If you haven’t donated in a while, now is the time.  I’m looking for groups of 3 (or more) willing to Give Someone Their Summer – did you know – it can take up to 50 blood donors to save 1 car accident victim?

    It's important that the places we call home are healthy environments, for ourselves and our visitors.

    Risks to health can occur in any home through environmental factors from nature itself, products we use, the air we breathe, or sometimes from the food we eat, or the water we drink.
