Community Advisory Committee
Families and patients are partners in the delivery of health care and are engaged in all aspects of our services.
The purpose of InterHealth Canada TCI (IHC –TCI) Community Advisory Committee is to provide a permanent forum for relevant input and perspectives in an effort to help the private health care management company improve the patient experience.
As an act of community service and devotion to volunteerism, the committee shall serve in an advisory capacity, making suggestions on matters which are of general interest to the broader community that impact the experience of patients and families at Cheshire Hall Medical Centre and Cockburn Town Medical Centre. These include service design, new programs and other similar areas.
The committee brings together ten individuals with a variety of backgrounds and lived experiences. This group includes persons who are hospital users and relatives of patients who use our services. This committee seeks:
- To provide feedback on, and ideas for, initiatives and programs that enhance, ensure and embrace the model of patient-centered care;
- To be a collaborative, positive and rational champion for the enhancement of high quality patient-centered care at IHC – TCI; and
- To advance patient engagement and patient-centered care principles and practices at both medical centers.
- Other duties may be assigned from time to time by the committee.
Our hospital also canvass feedback and recommendations through other channels. Community engagement and consultation with patients and their families are important to us.
