Provincial Governance

 

We are guided by the partnership of four key health system organizations: Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), CCO, Health Quality Ontario and the Quality Hospice Palliative Care Coalition of Ontario (the Coalition).

Under their leadership, a new provincial governance structure that is accountable to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care was introduced. This structure enables us to deliver on our mandate by implementing Regional Palliative Care Networks across the province.

Executive Oversight

The Executive Oversight is co-chaired by the CEOs of the Mississauga Halton LHIN and CCO.  Members include our four partners and representatives from each of our councils. The Executive Oversight provides leadership and ensures accountability and alignment of activities across the LHINs, CCO, the Quality Hospice Palliative Care Coalition of Ontario (the Coalition) and Health Quality Ontario. 

Implementation Advisory Council

The Implementation Advisory Council includes representatives from the LHINs, CCO Regional Cancer Programs and other partners as well as co-chairs of our other councils. It ensures that the regional palliative programs are engaging effectively and helps understand the potential impact of implementing our directions and recommendations.

Clinical Advisory Council

The Clinical Advisory Council is made up of multidisciplinary practitioners who provide recommendations for clinical improvements in hospice palliative care as well as advice on the clinical implications of policies.

Data & Information Advisory Council

The Data and Information Advisory Council includes representation from each of our councils and from key partners (the LHINs, CCO and Health Quality Ontario). It sets the strategic direction for provincial performance measurement and provider reporting.

Partnership Advisory Council

The Partnership Advisory Council advises us to help ensure that plans for hospice palliative care are informed by a diverse set of perspectives. They have a membership that reflects all levels of care, care settings, services and geographical diversity of the province. Members of this council gather advice, insights and recommendations from their networks. This council includes patient and family advisors.

Secretariat

The Secretariat offers staff support for operational and tactical activities of the network and helps to execute the mandate of the network.
