Vancouver Coastal Health approached Emily Carr University to aid in designing a behaviour change campaign for residential care aides at their extended care facilities.
Stay Safe is a behaviour change campaign developed to help strengthen community, wellness, and conversation in order to improve overall safety at VCH residential care facilities. Stay Safe endeavours to bring new culture into the Vancouver Coastal Health setting, devoted to creating a sense of community, showing respect, celebrating wellness, and highlighting safety for all involved with residential extended care. It is important to note that this campaign is maintained by everyone in the facility not just management, allowing for equal opportunity, discussion, and growth.
