The Best Possible Beginnings for
Strategies and Initiatives
At the core of individual, organizational and governmental initiatives and activities is Council’s commitment to improve access to care for all Ontarians, regardless of geography.
PCMCH’s health quality and improvement strategies and activities span the maternal/child/youth continuum of care and have a significant impact on the way in which health care is accessed by the public, and delivered, monitored, and evaluated by providers and the system-at-large.
Some of PCMCH’s strategies and initiatives are in the active phases of implementation and evaluation, while others are in the planning stages. Led by subject matter experts from across Ontario, PCMCH’s initiatives and projects are grounded in evidence, experience and a shared goal to improve the delivery and quality of care for mothers, babies, children and youth in Ontario.
Improving the Care Experience
PCMCH provides leadership in bringing the maternal newborn child and youth health care sector together to plan and implement health care practice solutions that improve access to and the quality of, health care provided to mothers and children in Ontario.
With an overarching goal to improve the care experience for patients and families, Council works with providers to identify strategic system-level priorities and initiatives that improve access to and the quality of, health care provided to mothers and children in Ontario.
