Co designing a Study of Youth with Youth: Visiting the ED with Mental Health Crisis

Co designing a Study of Youth with Youth: Visiting the ED with Mental Health Crisis

In situations of acute mental health emergencies, young people in Alberta have been increasingly using Emergency Departments (ED). To explore youth experiences when accessing ED, the Alberta Health Services Addictions and Mental Health (AMH) SCN, in partnership with PaCER, is using a survey questionnaire to engage large numbers of youth and their parents. 

Patient and Family Engagement

Patient and Family Engagement

Engaging patients and families in research and the design of quality improvement is an essential component of Patient and Family Centred Care (PFCC). Alberta Health Services (AHS) has been engaging patients and families to promote a cultural shift towards PFCC. This includes many inititatives such as supporting the creation of the innovative Patient and Community Engagement Research (PaCER) Internship training program.
