Not this time. It’s going to take a lot more than a few wicked problems to stop this quest for an effective, accessible and connected system of care that makes sense for Ontario’s children, youth and families.
You can’t flip a switch on transformation, and sometimes the incremental successes are easy to miss. They are there, however, and the Centre is proud to have a front-row seat to some of the most amazing developments – from small process changes that transform the service experience for families in a single community to a systemic culture shift that has catapulted quality to the top of the agenda.
This is a pivotal time in the transformation process, and the Centre is pleased to play a key role in getting this job done. A transformed system will be built from the ground up, from the top down, from the inside out and the outside in. Everybody has a role to play, and the Centre takes pride in our unique ability to support change at local, regional and system levels.
In 2016-17, we pulled out all the stops to ensure we had the people, resources and services that would facilitate and accelerate system transformation. We worked side-by-side with agencies to drive change in communities, while simultaneously chipping away at big-picture systemic barriers that are getting in the way of delivering meaningful results for Ontario’s children, youth and families.
Think big, start small and work fast – we are all in this together.
