What matters to you?
Welcome back to my blog. How did you get on with my challenge to you in the last blog? Have you tried something new? I felt it was only fair that I get involved too so I swan a mile for what I think is the first time ever (certainly in my adult life). Perhaps this blog will prompt you into new action. Maybe after reading this you might want to ask the question what matters to you? for the first time.
What is it?
What matters to you (WMTY) day occurs every year and is intended for health and social care professionals to stop, take time, ask the question and listen. It’s also a fantastic opportunity for the public to press pause and consider what the fundamental aspects of a good care experience are for them.
Why ask what matters to you?
There are a number of blogs which you mind find useful in understanding why we should ask each-other what matters to you? http://www.whatmatterstoyou.scot/previous-posts-2018/
What matters to me…
Some of my richest learning as a nurse has come from being a patient. Some of the things I included in my WMTY card reflect some of the excellent care I have received whilst other points were lessons I learned the hard way as a patient. These experience helped to further shape me as an individual and as a professional.
So what matters to you?
I would love to hear from you about what matters to you? What are your priorities when you are receiving care? Please leave a comment below.
