Community Health Services Network Committee
A new committee has formed to guide, monitor, and collaborate with internal and external key partners related to Fraser Health community health services. This committee will develop and share a seniors, community, and complex care strategy and evaluation plan. The committee will also approve decision support tools (such as policies and guidelines) that aim to support a consistent, high quality approach across the region.

The committee values all perspectives and is looking to include the perspective of the people who have experience receiving community health services.

Participate in 4 virtual meetings a year to share your perspective. Next meeting is in September.

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
