What Happened Across the Country in 2012?
Peterborough Regional Health "wanted to share some pictures of the wonderful day we had here in Peterborough celebrating National Nephrology Professionals Day. We started the morning by placing posters around the hospitals and decorating the unit. You will note a wall that is filled with patient comments about the quality of care they receive and the entire team that works to pull it all together. Coffee and cookies greeted staff and a pizza lunch was/will be held with the day, evening and weekend shift. Our VP came up and distributed memo pads that say "thank you for everything you do" and a pen. Our president blogged about the team recognizing their amazing efforts. We've left he Patient comment wall up as many people stop and read the comments they are wonderful!"
Sheldon M. Chumir Health Center in Calgary Alberta had a "huge potluck lunch at our clinic with a great turnout.."
Laura Caines from Western Health Care Corporation in Corner Brook, NF told us "All the staff celebrated in our unit. Our Patient Care Coordinator presented an inservice on Acid/Base Balance and brought goodies to snack on. I made home-made raisin tea biscuits hot out of the oven for coffee break. A good day was had by all!!!!!!!!!!"
One of the many advantages of a career in nephrology is the interrelationship that exists amongst healthcare providers. On a daily basis across Canada, consultation occurs amongst pharmacists, technologists, nurses, dieticians, social workers and doctors – in an effort to provide quality care to our patients with Chronic or End Stage Renal Disease. It is this team approach that unites us in our day-to-day challenges and improves outcomes.
In celebration, take this day to remind each other of how much you appreciate working together. For ideas on how to celebrate, go to one of the following websites:
