Empowering Dementia Friendly Communities Project

Where do we look for direction to guide our work? Maybe it’s our education, research, experiences, influence from colleagues and mentors . . . maybe it’s a combination of all the above. Now ask yourself, of the above, what single factor has impacted and changed the way that you do things for the better? Is it experience? While education and research help to ground and support the direction of our work, it is our experiences that take things to another level. We see for ourselves what works, what doesn’t and why some things that should theoretically work or make sense, simply don’t.

GHHN December 2022 Newsletter

As we come into the New Year, I reflect on all that has been done over 2022 and all of the pressures and stressors that remain. It has already been such a difficult and challenging Fall season, and we all know Winter is coming (which we know is not a relaxing time in health care to begin with!). I know messages of taking time off for the holidays is just not possible for many of you and work continues 24/7. I hope you find moments of down time to enjoy the joys of the festive season in any way that you can.

Building Health Equity in the Greater Hamilton Area

In the fall of 2020, the Greater Hamilton Health Network began the important work of implementing their vision to provide an equitable and seamless continuum of care that actively improves population health, while meeting the individual needs of the community.

As part of this work, the GHHN recognized and identified the need to engage the voices of communities who face systemic discrimination or marginalization to understand how this impacts access to universal and accessible health care, knowing that inequity drives poor health.

We are pleased to share our community driven Health Equity Report that shares the voices of our communities and our bold vision for an equitable and culturally safe healthcare system that is patient centered.
