Background

Overview

Champlain Pathways to Better Care is a regional initiative that emerged from the Connecting the Circle of Care Mental Health and Addictions Action Plan 2013-16 . This plan actively applies the lens of lived experience to help build and sustain a quality improvement agenda around local priorities. The primary purpose of Champlain Pathways to Better Care is to prioritize and support the implementation of collaborative, cross-organizational, and quality improvement initiatives identified within the 3 year plan.

Mission

Champlain Pathways to Better Care will work with others to implement coordinated changes to the Champlain mental health and addictions system – leading to improvements for those with lived experience and their families.  Our focus is on enabling and sustaining change through action, collaboration, knowledge, education, and expertise

Principles

  • The voice of those with lived experience and their families (as defined by them) must determine our focus and approach.
  • We will continually work with a client perspective that promotes a strength based Recovery Model.
  • We believe that having front line perspectives, those with lived experience, and family members at all tables will enable and support active collaboration.
  • We believe in supporting diversity and equity. Through this approach this we will provide work to provide appropriate care and services that are responsive to clients and their families.
  • We believe that a strong mental health and addictions system requires collective action and coordination.
  • We will model and foster personal, professional and organizational cultures, attitudes and actions that support teamwork.
  • We are committed to innovating to improve our system in a measurable way.
  • We will work to build capacity through continuous quality improvement within our sectors and organizations
  • We will solicit input to identify system bottlenecks and create as well as support the implementation of solutions.

Goal

Champlain Pathways to Better Care will work with others to implement coordinated changes to the Champlain mental health and addictions system – leading to improvements for those with lived experience and their families.  Our focus is on enabling and sustaining change through action, collaboration, knowledge, education, and expertise.
