Island Health’s Planning Team is engaging advisory groups (such as the MSAs) to hear what the experience has been over the last year, and what key lessons the organization is learning. This information will be used to inform Island Health’s annual planning for 2021/22 and strategic planning for the following years.

The MSA engagement summary, alongside feedback received from other advisory bodies, will be used to inform priorities and direction in the post-pandemic environment.

Please provide a short response to the questions below.
