Volunteer Opportunities in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Over the next few months we will be looking for the following types of volunteers:

  1. Quality Improvement Committee – We need 2 volunteers who are interested in Quality Improvement to sit on our Quality Improvement Committee. Time involved is 1-2 hours per meeting with approximately 6 meetings per year. Projects include looking at things like patient satisfaction, wait times, access to services, clinical targets and other aspects of patient care.
  2. Patient Advisory Committee – We need 8-10 interested individuals to form a pateint advisory committee. The group will set up its own meeting schedule (likely evenings) and will meet 4-5 times per year. The group will provide a pateint perspective on FHT education materials, patient handbook, programs and services, quality improvement pland and other FHT functions. Input from this committee will be taken to the Board of Directors.
  3. General Volunteers – If you are interested in working on newsletters, providing administrative support, organizing workshops, health fairs or local educational speakers please let us know and we will help support this work. Time commitment could be as much to as little as you want.
  4. Focus Group Discussions – We will look for 20-30 individuals willing to give 2 hours of their time on a one-time basis. Small group discussions will be used to determine ideas for program and services improvement and innovative ways to continue to serve the community.
