North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (NSM LHIN) is seeking community members to participate on the new Patient, Caregiver, Family Advisory Group (PCF Advisory Group) to the NSM LHIN.
Engaging local stakeholders regarding the local health systems needs and LHIN priorities is critical in supporting NSM LHIN’s mandate. This Group will serve as a forum for dialogue among community members as they advise the LHIN on issues and perspectives related to health system goals and objectives. The purpose of the Advisory Group is to provide advice to the LHIN on how to achieve person-centred health care within the local health system.
With the assistance and leadership of NSM LHIN staff, the Advisory Group will:
- Provide system level advice and guidance to the NSM LHIN to support the successful implementation of the NSM LHIN Integrated Health Service Plan 2013-2016, our Care Connections work and other LHIN and Ministry strategic priorities.
- As required, act as a resource to and/or work in collaboration with other NSM LHIN planning groups/committees.
The Advisory Group is expected to meet quarterly (4 times per year) and membership is extended to all North Simcoe Muskoka community residents (NSM LHIN’s geographic region).
If you are interested in applying to be a member of the Advisory Group or know someone who may want to participate, please download and complete the Expression of Interest form and return to Sheila Winegarden by:
