  • Danyal MartinHi there - thank you for sharing this story! It sounds like there is a lot of great work happening and I really appreciated the structures that you put in place (e.g. steering committee). I suspect that will help with sustainability as well.

    One question - at the end you made reference to doing more upstream work as part of your next steps. Could you speak at all to the role of primary care in your work? Were they engaged in the work described above? 6 months ago

  • Carmela Costiniuk@Danyal Martin Hi there, yes we engaged our Primary Care Leads and our Integrated Care Directors who also participate in sub region planning. With respect to working more upstream, I am referring to more robust practices in the emergency departments prior to consult to medicine. Hope that answers your questions. Thanks for the comments.Carmela6 months ago
