Advisory Groups & Committees

Community Advisory Group

This voluntary body is an important advisory group to the RVHS Board of Directors. It is comprised of members, who reflect the diverse communities and viewpoints that make up the Rouge Valley area of east Toronto and west Durham.

The primary purpose of the Community Advisory Group is to ensure that RVHS is made aware of the needs and viewpoints of the community. Find out more.

 

Community & family advisory committees

One of the key ways that Rouge Valley ensures the highest quality care to our community is by consulting with users of our health services about their needs and experiences. We do this through advisory committees that provide input and counsel to specific RVHS programs.

  • Cardiac Care Community Advisory Committee: This cross site committee is focused on advocacy for more cardiac services across Rouge Valley Health System.

  • Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering Mental Health Services Community Advisory Committee: This campus-specific committee is focused on building a forum that enables consumers, family members and community agencies to provide input, in an advisory capacity, on Rouge Valley's mental health program. By creating open avenues of communications, this program committee hopes to better meet the needs of the west Durham community.

  • Rouge Valley Centenary Mental Health Services Community Advisory Committee: This campus-specific committee is focused on building a forum that enables consumers, family members and community agencies to provide input, in an advisory capacity, on Rouge Valley's mental health program. By creating open avenues of communications, this program committee hopes to better meet the needs of the east Toronto community.

  • Cancer/Palliative Community Advisory Committee: This cross site committee is comprised of community and staff representatives from both sites. The group meets four times a year, providing networking opportunities for the cancer care community, promoting awareness of the services in the community and identifying quality issues and educational opportunities for the service.

  • The Pacers Group: This group of Rouge Valley Centenary pacemaker patients meets annually to discuss issues related to their pacemakers and to provide informal feedback on the service they receive.

  • Complex Continuing Care Residents’ Council: This group of program staff addresses issues specifically related to Rouge Valley Centenary's complex continuing care (CCC) unit. The council also solicits feedback on the CCC program from patients and their families through a quarterly survey.
