Change Day is a global movement that was started in 2013 by the National Health Service (NHS) in England, which invites any person involved in health or social care to make a pledge and change one small thing to improve care. Pledges can encompass anything, from the small (learning each patient’s name) to the large (connecting 250 members of an organization in a randomized coffee trial).

The message behind Change Day is that any individual can make an impact, and that small efforts add up to huge impacts on quality of care. Countries all over the world have since launched their own Change Days, spreading the energy and excitement to improve care globally.

Change Day BC 2017

On November 17, 2017, we held the second Change Day BC. This time, Alberta and Ontario joined in and held their own concurrent Change Day campaigns. More than 18,000 pledges were made across Canada, and over 7,110 in BC alone, from every corner of the province, and every area of care.
