Sent on behalf of Michael Barrett, CEO, South West LHIN
As you may know, Ontario is seeking input from health care experts on how to improve the quality and value of care provided by the home and community care sector. To support the implementation of better home and community care for clients and patients, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care appointed the Home and Community Care Review Expert Group (Expert Group).
To this end, the Expert Group asked LHINs across Ontario to engage the public about home and community services and how they could support residents in the future. The South West LHIN has developed a survey (links below) asking a single question:
What is the most important thing that the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care could do to improve home and community care for you?
The Expert Group wants to hear from individuals, families and caregivers who use the programs and services in question as well as those who provide these services. And so, to help us in distributing the survey to those who would be most impacted, we kindly ask for assistance in sharing this survey so that we may reach as many individuals in our community as possible.
The survey will be active from today until December 17, 2014 and may be accessed from our website here.
We are seeking input from all members of the community, including clients, care providers and administrators. The survey will be anonymous but may be used to inform future South West LHIN initiatives. We ask that you share this survey with your organization and members of the community.
