Setting the stage

Primary Health Care in French in Ontario (2006) Provincial and Regional study

image setting the stageSetting the Stage is a French language health services planning project. It is a national initiative of the Société Santé en français (SSF) and is funded by Health Canada through the Primary Health Care Transition Fund (Official Language Minority Communities Envelope). Over the past two years, Canada’s 17 French language health networks, including the Réseau franco-santé du Sud de l'Ontario [Franco Health Network
of Southern Ontario], have been conducting a study involving both field work and documentary research. The goal of the study was to achieve a better understanding of the health needs, gaps and priorities of Francophone minority communities and to develop potential solutions. One of the project’s concrete deliverables has been all of the information and analyses now available that will facilitate decision making on the best ways of providing quality health care services to the Francophone population.

Health Human Resources Strategy

Wales taking interest in the Canadian HHR Strategy Framework

  Quote from Mrs Gwerfyl Roberts, Senior Lecturer, School of Healthcare Sciences, Bangor University, Wales "I was particularly taken by the Framework (HHR Strategy) because it meant so much to us in Wales… I was able to identify so clearly with the Framework and what you were trying to do. Here was a comprehensive, evidenced-based piece of work which was very easy to read… It made an awful lot of sense to us in Wales because it’s the kind of steps that we are taking to look at the big challenge that we have in terms of workforce planning and workforce development, which of course is such a huge aspect of active offer. Unless we have the workforce there, we simply cannot make that active offer."
