As required by the government of Ontario to involve residents in the decision making process concerning their health care systems after the passing of the Local Health System Integration Act in 2006, the South East Local Health Integration Network (SE LHIN) launched the community engagement phase of their Clinical Services Roadmap project in March of 2011. The project was initiated to gain community feedback and strengthen the health care system in South East Ontario. Residents submitted their opinions concerning seven central focus areas of clinical services in the form on a workbook over an eight week period. The results from the project were incorporated in to the South East LHIN decisions involving services and allocations.
