  30. 30. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful Our Vision for the Future (from 2011 Planning) Five years from now, there has been amazing changes and work done because of the Oral Health Coalition. What were the core values that guided, motivated, and inspired the work done by the coalition? What gave clarity to the group in times when they wondered whether something was a good idea or not? How were decisions made? What allowed this group to become great at what it had to offer?
  31. 31. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful Core Values • Collaboration • Common Goals • Commitment • Best Practice
  32. 32. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful What allowed the group to be great? • Accountability • Inclusiveness • Decision-making • Sustainable Budget
  33. 33. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful Gaps Identified: • Seniors  Long Term Care • Low income/low socio-economic groups • New Canadians/immigrants/refugees  Maternal Health • People with mental/physical challenges • Homeless/vulnerable people
  34. 34. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful What do we want our Coalition to look like? • Broader, for a more well-rounded perspective • Increased membership: more multi-sector, with more representation from federal, provincial, and civic levels of government. More front line workers, from more health care disciplines. And, more representation from funding agencies.
  35. 35. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful What do we want our Coalition to look like? • Our strength will be in our numbers and having our common cry coming from many different sectors.
  36. 36. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful What are we agreeing upon, by being in this Coalition? • That there exists huge unmet (and unaddressed) needs in our province. We must raise the governments (and the public) consciousness, to make oral health a priority. • That we are willing to each serve as a resource to the group: to inform, educate, and update on relevant issues, so that all members may reach a common level of understanding.
  37. 37. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful What are we agreeing upon, by being in this Coalition? • That our own individual agendas will be “left at the door”, as we can’t use a coalition as a means of advancing our own agendas.
  38. 38. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful Who is missing from this Coalition? Government Representation:  Health Canada  SK Ministry of Health • Civic government  First Nations  Other Health Regions
  39. 39. Collaborative ~ Diverse ~ Leaders – Proactive - Respectful Who is missing from this Coalition? Homecare, daycare, special needs groups • University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine School Board representation (Saskatoon) • Prenatal educators • Middle years/adults
