Good decision making for an available, accessible and acceptable health system requires an understanding of citizen values, preferences and opportunities, and the resources available to implement solutions. Ideas from many stakeholders is key; no one group holds all the knowledge, insights and solutions for health system improvement.

We are committed to:

  • building relationships with our stakeholders
  • interacting with stakeholders in purposeful ways
  • using engagement approaches that are appropriate for people involved and the issues at hand, and that maximize participant satisfaction

Community Engagement Guidelines

The Guidelines include:

  • Key engagement requirements
  • The Triple Aim framework, which supports a population-health focus
  • The International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) guiding principles
  • Situational suggestions and principles
  • Ways to identify documentation and evaluation components of engagement activity
