Advancing Aboriginal Cultural Competency

The provision of culturally competent care for the Aboriginal community can have an immediate impact on improving relationships amongst Indigenous patients and healthcare providers and improving the patient experience, as well as enabling equitable access to services and contributing to overall quality of care.  All 14 LHINs support advancing cultural competency within their LHINs.  In September 2013/14, the LHIN CEOs supported the development of performance indicators to track the progress the LHINs are making in advancing this work.
