About the Steering Committee

The Network Steering Committee has highlighted five areas of focus through which to fulfill its mandate. Five Work Groups oversee these areas of focus:



Education:

Educates Network members on new processes, procedures and developments of the Steering Committee to ensure such processes are implemented consistently across the board.

Current focus:
  • Work closely with each of the other Work Groups to help transition new developments from concept to implementation.
  • Spearheads ongoing education initiatives for members, including an annual Education Day for service providers and caregivers.



Communication:
Develops and maintains communications tools to keep Network members connected.

Current focus:
  • Oversee the CHPCN website (www.centralhpcnetwork.ca), which provides background information about the Network, its reach and its services, as well as an on-line tool to share information, forms and processes in a secure, password accessible platform.
  • Development of a comprehensive communications plan to ensure consistent and timely delivery of information, including a monthly electronic newsletter.



Quality of Care:
The goal for this workgroup, which is an amalgamation of the Integration and Individual and Family workgroups, is to take the lead in the coordination and integration of HPC services across the Central LHIN. The intended outcomes of this workgroup, now called “Quality of Care workgroup” include:
  • Access to Hospice Palliative Care services across the Central LHIN is facilitated.
  • Consistent outcomes of Hospice Palliative Care services are routinely measured and communicated.



Research and Evaluation:

Current focus:
  • Development of evaluation tools for Network members & other stakeholders and for the Network Steering Committee.
  • Compilation of a quality indicator inventory gathered from various agencies and associations.
  • Collaborating with neighbouring LHINs in the development of a pilot project designed to improve the standard of hospice palliative care.
