We asked

Collaborating in Health Strategy 2022-24 sets a new strategic direction for lived experience experts to influence the way Metro North Health delivers healthcare. There were 5 proposed priorities in the Strategy focusing on the known gaps, such as expanding the diversity of community representation in our improvement activities and empowering consumers as partners in their healthcare journey. The priorities also align with the National Safetyand Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards for consumer partnerships.

We asked for feedback on our proposed approach and priorities to strengthen consumer and community engagement across our health services.

You said

You supported the general approach and recommended a couple of additions.
You commended us for our proposed commitment to inclusive engagement to ensure a diversity of views and perspectives are heard. 
You asked for a greater focus on collective action that brings together different consumer perspectives to influence system change.
You requested evidenced based health literacy methods be included in the strategic approach to involve consumers as partners, for example, “teach back” and “show me”.
You requested that some of the language in the strategy be simplified.

We did

We incorporated your suggestions in the strategic priorities. 
We simplified the language and created graphics for the principles that underpin our approach.
The Board endorsed Metro North Health’s Collaborating in Health Strategy 2022-24.

We asked
