Western Health conducting needs and resources assessment

Residents of the western region can share their views and provide feedback about health and wellness by completing a community health survey on the Western Health website.

The survey is the first part of a community health needs and resources assessment the health authority started Jan. 1.

It asks questions about community services, including children and youth programs and seniors programs, and health-related community services — emergency departments, mental health and addictions services. It will be available on the website until Feb. 29.

The assessment will also include focus groups, health-status statistics and community resource listings.

The results of the assessment will be used to identify health-related issues and resources in the region and help Western Health plan its programs and services.

 The results will be available to the public on the website. Results of a 2013 assessment can also be accessed there.

Complete the survey and see the 2013 results:
