Vancouver Island Chapter Presents
Tuesday, May 13, 2014
The presentation will provide an overview of the Ministry of Health planning guide and the change implications and leadership that will be required to successfully execute the priorities. The vision is a sustainable health system that supports people to stay healthy and provides high quality publicly funded health care services that meet their needs when they are sick.
Implementing change in a complex system is not only difficult, it can also be unpredictable. To be considered successful, the strategy must improve the service experience of patients and their families and improve health outcomes in the population.
