The Waterloo Wellington LHIN Patient and Family Advisory Committee
How we work with our committee
The Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is pleased to announce our new Patient and Family Advisory Committee. This committee aims to assist in shaping LHIN programs, services and initiatives to make it easier for you to be healthy and to get the care and support you need.
The members of this committee will help guide the design and launch of our Patient Experience Program – a program that will put the voice of patients at the centre of health care planning so that together we can drive meaningful change and improve the patient experience for those living in our community.
With the Waterloo Wellington LHIN staff, the Patient and Family Advisory Committee:
Identifies and advises on innovative opportunities to incorporate the patient’s perspective in initiatives to make it easier for residents in Waterloo Wellington to be healthy and to get the care and support they need.
Support creative engagement and inclusion of patients and caregivers in system improvement within the Waterloo Wellington LHIN.
Provide advice on recommendations about health care access or service delivery improvements from the patient and/or family caregiver perspective.
Work with the LHIN CEO, LHIN staff, service providers and partners on strategies and practical ideas for improving patient care, and caregiver recognition and support.
