Southern Health-Santé Sud Board of Directors June Meeting Highlights

Sacred Moment
Dr. Desmond Leen shared how the practice of starting a meeting with a sacred moment provides an opportunity to reflect on the purpose of our work, to get to know those around the table and to grow a sense of belonging. Research on cohesion and belonging has been shown to create higher levels of satisfaction and improved outcomes. As an example, Dr. Leen referenced the 120-year-old Dabbawala lunch delivery service in Mumbai, India. This service illustrates excellence and cohesion despite numerous barriers and has been recognized and memorialized worldwide for a near-perfect delivery record.

Healthcare Insurance Reciprocal of Canada (HIROC)
The Board received a presentation from HIROC, which provided background information explaining the organization and work of HIROC together with a review of liability specifically relating to Directors and Officers.

Manitoba Institute for Patient Safety
At its 2018 Annual Meeting, Ms. Teresa Wright, from Langruth Elementary School, was named recipient of the Dr. John Wade Award.  Teresa was recognized for her work in implementing the ‘Reinforcing Home Safety and Injury Prevention project’ at the school.  Ms. Dianna Meyseton-Neufeld, Healthy Living Facilitator with Southern Health-Santé Sud, was instrumental in encouraging, engaging and supporting Teresa to take on this project. It was a great project and very unique because it was another sector who was leading and implementing it resulting in great outcomes for the community.
