Abstract

In the spring of 2013, the Executive Director of the CBHSSJB received the offer of a funding competition from the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC). Improving the cancer journey is part of the CBHSSJB’s strategic plan. With encouragement from the Ministère de la santé, the Inuit Region had already agreed to apply to the competition. As Phase 1 of the project, we agreed to collaborate with the Inuit Region. CPAC accepted our application and jointly awarded us $100,000 for Phase 2 to develop a joint, 3year proposal by November 15, 2013, followed by a state of the situation report by early February 2014. Our proposal was accepted by CPAC, a 3year contract was signed and we are working with the Inuit Region in four main areas.

 

1. Hearing and document what patients have to say

2. Cultural competency of the health care system

3. Improving the linkages between levels of services

4. Improving services offered within the CBHSSJB
