Strategic Plan

Context

This Plan comes amidst a global pandemic. It is a stressful time in our Province for our community, our patients and our team. To respond to these challenging times, we have chosen to create and execute a two-year strategic plan, rather then a three-to-five-year plan, for Queen Square Family Health Team. This plan is flexible and can be adapted as necessary. Through planning and action, each member of our team is committed to achieving the goals in the plan though the principals of health equity, diversity, anti-discrimination, and inclusion.

Our new Strategic Plan is adaptive to the changing times, and above all, places people – our patients, clients and team members — at the centre of all we do. Our plan is not about doing new things. It is about bringing focus to what is most important, and recognizing the environment we are in is evolving.

This Plan is inspired by the Quadruple Aim, which looks at the patient experience of care, reducing the total cost of care, population health, and improving workforce well-being with the mindset that well looked after healthcare providers equate to the same in our patients and clients.
