Collaborative Services Committee
The Collaborative Services Committee made the decision that the allocated Integrated Primary and Community Care (IPCC) bilateral funds would be targeted for patients with Mental Health and Substance Use conditions in the communities of 100 Mile House and Williams Lake, and the surrounding areas. The IPCC project working group was formed in January 2014 with the purpose of conducting a focused review/analysis to determine patient needs.
Research Activities included interviews with working group members, key informant interviews (27 interviews conducted with a total of 60 people), a document and data review leading to the development of a service delivery model in alignment with the bilateral agreement funding parameters and with the guidance of the IPCC Working Group. Guiding principles for the service delivery model include linking with and building on existing services, avoiding duplication, and supporting equitable access.
