Through collaboration with government, other agencies and organizations, we will advocate for major organizational change and secure partnership opportunities to enhance the care provided to New Brunswickers.
The concept of publicly funded health care is complex. Dramatic changes will take place in the near future in federal/provincial funding support. Changes in the factors influencing costs in the public system (e.g. demographics), and most important, federal philosophy towards taking on a reduced role in regulating a purely provincial responsibility have brought us to an opportunity where we can create a new approach that works for New Brunswick. Our new design model must be practical and fit the circumstances of time and place in each situation, within a broad framework that provides guidance.
