The Association of Health – Walk a day in my shoes
As a way to reach out and promote the conversation between the union and local politicians, we developed a shoe bag with Crocs slippers with the invitation “Walk a day in my shoes.”
Vårdförbundet’s members have successfully used the shoe bag to influence local politicians on various current issues since the summer of 2012,
and received a lot of attention and media publicity during the ”midwife uprising” (Barnmorskeupproret) in the spring of 2013. A number of midwives started a petition against the savings in maternity care, that had become so extensive that they threatened patient safety.
