Leadership Gathering

TOWARDS A WHOLE-SYSTEM, PERSON-CENTERED APPROACH TO SERVICE DELIVERY​

Many people access services from multiple sectors, and outcomes in one area, commonly have positive or negative consequences for outcomes in other areas. Although this interdependence is well-known, truly integrative approaches have been slow to appear. Through our Leadership Gathering, an expert panel leads discussions to improve the coordination of complex service delivery.

PAST SESSIONS

WORKING ACROSS SECTORS TO FOCUS ON THE PERSON: NORTH AMERICAN EXAMPLES

Our November session continues to focus on the question of bridging differing mandates and structures within the health, justice, and social sectors to bring the person’s holistic needs and outcomes into focus by looking at two North American examples.

WORKING ACROSS SECTORS TO FOCUS ON THE PERSON: INTERNATIONAL EXAMPLES ​

Our June session moves from discussing the operational realities of complex service delivery to the question of bridging differing mandates and structures within the health, justice, and social sectors to bring the person’s holistic needs and outcomes into focus.

LIVED EXPERIENCE, SUBSTANCE USE, AND PERSON-CENTERED SERVICE

Through our February webinar, a peer-facilitated panel kindly shared their lived experience of seeking services and support. Keeping the focus on lived experience, the April session takes a deeper look into the current operational environment across the social, health, and justice sectors.

LIVED EXPERIENCE - CONNECTIONS & MENTAL HEALTH

Focused on the theme “Lived Experience – Connections and Gaps”, our February Leadership Gathering panel discussion features people with firsthand experience seeking support and experiencing the gaps and inconsistencies of the “service ecosystem” for people with complex needs. Panelists also have expertise as peer mentors and direct service providers, working to support others navigate these systems.

TOWARDS A WHOLE-SYSTEM, PERSON-CENTERED APPROACH TO SERVICE DELIVERY

Many people access services from multiple sectors, and interventions or outcomes in one area, whether they be therapeutic, supportive, or corrective, commonly have positive or negative consequences for interventions and outcomes in other areas. Through our first Leadership Gathering, experts discuss how to improve the coordination of complex service delivery.
