On Track is the development of a Roadmap that aims to inform, shape and influence the future direction of the mental health and addiction sector. Working for Te Pou and Platform Trust, Phillipa coordinated this exciting initiative involving people from across the mental health and addiction sector and the wider health and social sectors.
The democratic approach to quality is emerging from the more traditional approaches as a distinctive attitude that is better suited to the modern health and welfare system. Our vision of achieving optimal outcomes for people who come in contact with mental health and addictions services is focussed on three key areas -
quality improvement, service improvement toolkit and sector transformation. For us, these key areas link to focus on a core process - the conversation.
Supporting the approaches being adopted by providers who are looking for new ways to help structure their service improvement activities.
Developing a new way of thinking about the sector and its relationship to the communities of people that we serve.
