NPHA Governance

Healthcare practitioners need a voice in the system transformation and how care is delivered. To facilitate the organization of practitioners in the Niagara OHT-ÉSON catchment area, practitioners have recognized the need for an alliance to undertake tasks such as advising on appropriate organizational structure, obtaining input from physicians and practitioners, discuss issues related to clinical and policy issues related to their practice, patients, community and ultimately the OHT. This alliance working group does not have formal authority and its role is currently advisory.
