Governor Quality Symposium 2016     
Leading Together - Committed to Quality

Sub-region map

Governor colleagues came together for an interactive, action oriented session aimed to create a high quality, integrated health system for residents. At the Quality symposium they heard from the Ministry, Health Quality Ontario (HQO) and the LHIN on the provincial and local quality landscape. Lee Fairclough, Vice President, HQO (see bio below), provided a key note address, leaving time for governor and HQO discussion.  

At the 2015-16 governor sessions you asked the Waterloo Wellington LHIN to provide direction on the system changes required to meet resident needs. We heard you. The Waterloo Wellington LHIN provided an overview of areas for improvement and collaboration. You also told us you were ready to lead needed change. To help you lead this change, HQO launched a new, simple “cross organizational collaborative quality improvement plan” and Waterloo Wellington has been selected to be the first LHIN provincially to use this tool to drive sub-region integration. The Waterloo Wellington LHIN is recognized as having governors ready to lead and committed to quality.    

Invitees: Board members, including Board quality chairs (if applicable), CEOs/Executive Directors of primary care organizations, hospitals, home and community care, mental health and action agencies and long term care.
