|| My Heath: How to Support My Decision Making
My Health is part one of a two part medical decision making research project. We created My Health to allow individual’s to feel more empowered to consider how they prefer to be supported when making decisions as they pertain to their health. It encourages people to identify areas where they wish to receive support or perhaps areas in which they would like to learn more. The survey helps us identify areas to improve the resource, it’s effectiveness, and will ultimately help guide our secondary resource that will be released this spring.
|Survey now closed;
Resource only is still available.

||Help shape the future of virtual care in our province
Message to the public:
Saskatchewan has adopted new ways of connecting patients directly to their doctor or healthcare provider without stepping out the door, through virtual care. Virtual care uses certain technologies, such as video conferencing and specific apps. Telephone, text, and email are also included under the virtual care umbrella. Millions of medical appointments took place using these methods during the pandemic. The Government of Saskatchewan wants to learn more about how these medical appointments are working for patients. And if you haven’t used virtual care yet, we want to know why not. Make your voice heard and help shape the future of virtual care.
Message to Health Care Providers:
Saskatchewan has adopted new ways to safely connect you to patients since early 2020 through virtual care. Virtual care can use certain technologies, such as video conferencing and specific apps. Telephone, text, and email are also included under the virtual care umbrella. Millions of virtual care appointments have been booked during the pandemic. The Government of Saskatchewan wants to learn more about how virtual care is working for healthcare providers. If you haven’t used virtual care yet, we also want to hear why not.
The Ministry of Health launched a platform to solicit public input into the future of virtual care on March 8, 2022. The engagement platform will be open for input until April 30, 2022. The engagement has been going well with 1,640 completed patient surveys, 290 completed provider surveys, 672 quick polls responses, 31 story submissions, and 17 ideas collected to date. We are interested in hearing from as many patients and families, providers, and stakeholders as possible and appreciate your organization’s continued support to increase awareness of the engagement.
If you have already promoted this initiative in your workplace, we would like to thank you. If you have yet had an opportunity to promote the initiative, we would ask that you consider doing so as soon as possible to take advantage of the platform’s availability until the end of the month. Please see the attached Intranet or internal email documents for communication purposes to choose what would work best for your workplace. We have also attached printable posters for any high-traffic areas you may have.
