Since 2010, the Réseau has advised the LHINs on regional planning, with a particular focus on the offer of French-language health services.
Our role as advisor is a very dynamic one. It enables us to work at various levels of the healthcare system to strengthen the offer of French-language services. Most importantly, it enables us, in collaboration with the LHIN, to promote the necessary means to ensure that the Francophone community receives accessible health services tailored to its needs.
Our planning approach is focused on healthcare system and stakeholder accountability and incorporates four elements:
- Giving the community a role in identifying needs and planning French-language health services.
- Generating data to support French-language health service planning.
- Supporting designation as a mechanism for planning and delivering French-language health services.
- Empowering system stakeholders to fulfill their responsibilities regarding French-language services.
We engage with our community to improve planning. Why?
