Entité 4’s sixth Annual General Meeting took place at Black Creek CHC in front of approximately 80 guests and attendees. This event was a perfect opportunity to thank our partners who contributed in developing access to French language health services during 2015-2016, and to talk about the imminent transformation of Ontario’s health system.
Entité 4 sits on committees and participates in working groups or tables to advise stakeholders on the needs of Francophone communities, particularly in the planning of health services which address these needs. Entité 4 also uses these meetings to promote existing services and encourages its partners to share this information.
6 working tables throughout Entité 4’s catchment area:
Entité 4 hired a consultant to better understand palliative care capacity in French within its catchment area. Recommendations ensued for each of our partner LHINs on ways to improve palliative care for Francophones. The main issues raised touched on reliability of information, difficulty to navigate through services for patients, support for caregivers and lack of end-of-life discussions with health professionals.
This year, Entité 4 joined palliative care planning tables at each partner LHIN to ensure Francophone needs are identified during the planning phase.
To maximize utilization of services available in French, Entité 4 participates in the development of promotional materials for health service providers (Black Creek CHC, Centres d’Accueil Héritage, TAIBU CHC).
