He also values the publication of remarkable observations in single patients.

Machteld Huber
Institute for Positive Health

Machteld Huber, MD PhD, former GP, became a researcher after her own experience as a patient. She formulated a new dynamic concept of health to replace the static WHO definition. In elaborating this concept she discovered the broad perception of health, as perceived by patients.

To honour the patients view and avoid confusion she named this perception ‘Positive Health’, which is visualized in six dimensions of a spider web. This approach meets broad recognition among professionals and patients.

In 2015 she initiated the Institute for Positive Health (iPH) to support the implementation of this concept in healthcare and public health. Machteld Huber was rewarded with the ZonMw Pearl in 2012 and elected as most influential person in public health in 2015.

Carole Ann Alloway
Caregiver and Co-founder
Family Caregivers Voice

Carole Ann Alloway is a retired Human Resources Manager, mother of four and grandmother of seven. Carole Ann became a full-time caregiver for her husband, Bill, who had ten operations in a 7-year period. During this period, Bill’s gastrointestinal issues progressively worsened, and he developed heart failure. She has witnessed first-hand the gaps in the health care and home care systems. Together with Sara Shearkhani, another caregiver, they have co-founded Family Caregivers Voice. Sara and Carole Ann receive invitations to speak at health conferences, hospitals, home care agencies, etc. to share their experiences, while raising awareness of the importance of making the caregiver an integral part of the health care team. Both Sara and Carole Ann work closely with The Change Foundation, Health Quality Ontario, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and various hospitals and Local Health Integration Networks. Carole Ann recently won a Heroes in the Home award from the Toronto Central LHIN. Carole Ann and Sara were recently successful in acquiring a $3M grant with Bridgepoint Hospital from The Change Foundation to improve the caregiver experience from hospital to home and beyond. Carole Ann is now working with The Change Foundation on a series of videos based on her Caregiver Wish List, in an effort to improve the caregiver experience in Ontario.

Family Caregivers Voice is a caregiver-led group dedicated to educating caregivers on their journey and educating the health care system on the importance of including caregivers in the conversation. They believe that by improving the life of the caregiver, the patient will achieve their best outcome. They work with healthcare professionals to engage caregivers in co-design of the system. Sara Shearkhani and Carole Ann Alloway are caregivers and co-founders of FCV, working with key organizations in Ontario (HQO, MOHLTC, The Change Foundation, local LHINs etc. ) to shed light on caregiver issues and have been featured in many articles and videos.
