Why are we seeking your input?
The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) would like to build on the strengths of current long-term care (LTC) programs and services in First Nation communities. We are seeking feedback from community health staff, such as Health Directors, on your experiences working with current LTC programs and supports across all age groups, inclusive of: pregnant women, newborns, children, adults and older adults.
This feedback will support the development of options to transform current LTC services into a culturally safe, wholistic continuum of care that reflects the First Nations perspective on health and wellness. Please take a few minutes to complete our feedback survey. Your responses are voluntary and confidential. You may leave the survey at any time. Once you submit your responses, they will not be identified, but will be part of an overall report.

Please note as we move forward with this work, a key priority is to build definitions that reflect the First Nations perspective on health and wellness.
The survey is open for your feedback until Friday, September 9.
