About Better

Better shares the story of how Lean is making health care better and safer in Saskatchewan.

Our aim is to celebrate our successes and learning moments. This story is told in words and pictures sent to us by health regions and health care organizations across the province. If you are a patient, family member or health care worker we would love to hear from you as well.

The Better blog takes its name from our provincial health strategy.
