Advancing Aboriginal Cultural Competency

Providing culturally competent care for the Aboriginal community can have an immediate impact on improving relationships among Indigenous patients and healthcare providers, improving the patient experience, enabling equitable access to services, and contributing to overall quality of care.

All 14 LHINs support advancing cultural competency within their regions. In September 2013, LHIN CEOs supported the development of performance indicators to track the progress the LHINs are making in this work.
