Make a pledge and join the Institute for Heart + Lung Health in supporting Change Day BC!

Change Day BC builds on the successful global movement ignited by the National Health Service (NHS) in England. Countries including Northern Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, India, Jordan, South Africa, USA, Saudi Arabia and Saskatchewan, Canada are holding their own change days.

As part of Change Day BC, we are inviting our team to make a change or try something new to improve care for our patients. Pledges can be big or small. They can be related to any topic. They are voluntary and made by people passionate about changing care for the better. Team members will make their pledge online at

We invite you to make your pledge any time between now and Change Day (October 15, 2015), then join a province-wide movement by acting on that pledge for one day or every day.

Change Day BC is being coordinated by the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council and partners like us, who believe that British Columbia’s health, community and social care systems are powered by the creativity, passion and commitment of their patients, providers and administrators.

So now the question is … what will you pledge? Join the campaign at 1 Day. 5000 Pledges. Unlimited Possibilities.

Need inspiration? Check out what our co-directors, Drs. Mark FitzGerald and Bruce McManus have pledged.
