Pathways for Health Equity Quality Improvement Strategy

The PATHWAYS for Health Equity research program builds on the 5-year FORGE AHEAD Indigenous diabetes quality improvement research program (2013 - 2017). PATHWAYS for Health Equity, a 3-year research program (2017 - 2019), is a great opportunity to continue our important collaborative diabetes quality improvement research with an increasing number of Indigenous partnering communities and researchers and key stakeholders (collaborators, policymakers and knowledge-users). Four partnering First Nations communities will join the Pathways program to develop community-driven quality improvement initiatives championed by a Community Facilitator and supported by a Community Data Coordinator.
