"The Missing Link in Native Care: Resource Accounting & The KS Solution"

2008 National Healthcare Leadership Conference
Session Topic: Accountability – Alignment of Needs
and Resource Placement
Saskatoon, SK - 2 June 2008

Resource accounting principles provide more effective planning for regionalized Native health care delivery by driving best management practices, since cost effectiveness is measured. Major improvements to Aboriginal health in New Zealand and Australia were facilitated through the adoption of such methods, rather than cash accounting by regions. Multiple funding sources and fragmented delivery of our Aboriginal health can be remedied through similar adoption of such principles.

"The Learning Model of Integrated Care (LMIC)"

2007 National Healthcare Leadership Conference
Session Topic: Workplace Culture and Change Management
Toronto, ON - June 2007

To promote a non-hierarchical team structure, optimize administrative procedures and resource allocation, a new model of integrated care has been implemented at the Oshawa Health Centre. The centre is being managed under an innovative adaptation of the learning organization model (Senge, 1990), entitled the ”Learning Model of Integrated Care‘ (LMIC). Through actively engaging team members in identifying and solving problems, the organization is empowered to continuously experiment, adapt, and improve. Study results indicate high levels of efficiency, client, and practitioner satisfaction. (Please see Projects for more information.)
