Cormac Russell’s https://www.nurturedevelopment...-are/cormac-russell/ talk, When Community Itself is Healthy emphasis’ Health Systems prioritizing asset based approaches in community neighbourhood development to the British Columbia Health Quality Forum.

  • Shift money from the acute ends of our health systems and move upstream
  • Aim to surround people with an interdependent community
  • Resist social prescribing of individuals, instead focus facilitation in the community that surrounds them
  • Make sure we don’t overreach with our institutionalizing of care through knowing our place and role in the community
  • Deploy services to recognize the gifts of individuals and neighbours in order for the services to be able to work “alongside people” and enhance citizenship
