Engaging Our Community As We Plan For The Future
“St. Joe’s has serviced all my family, and I have been a long-time patient,” says Mae Couzens Duffy, one of our Patient Advisors and a member of our Community Reference Panel.
Duffy, alongside 35 other residents, shared their input over three full days and one evening to advise on the Health Centre’s future strategic directions.
“Everyone gets a really good shot at being listened to,” Duffy says of the panel. “Everyone’s information is being taken with respect.”
An invitation to join the panel was sent to 10,000 randomly selected households in our catchment area, and the panelists were then selected to represent the community along age, geography and gender lines.
“I do think the panels at St. Joe’s really strive to make this a better place,” Duffy says.
