Guiding Principles

PSBC developed guiding principles to guide us to achieve the vision and goals of PSBC, PHSA, and the Maternity Services Strategy, support communication with our partners, and strengthen our team through implementing shared principles. These principles were created in consultation with PSBC staff and PSBC’s Community Advisory Committee and Indigenous Community Advisory Circle.

We take action to address all discrimination, including Indigenous specific racism, and health inequities through practicing cultural humility, listening and learning, and embracing diversity and multiple ways of knowing.

How we put this into action:

‎We support health-care providers and inform health leaders to deliver high quality, evidence based, equitable, and accessible perinatal and newborn care across the province through partnerships and innovation, and by building stronger teams and networks of care.

How we put this into action:

‎We aim to give voice to patients/clients and families through authentic engagement to improve health outcomes, strengthen health care design, improve patient experience, and strengthen accountability.

How we put this into action:
  • Engage with patients and clients through PSBC’s Community Advisory Committee and Indigenous Community Advisory Circle
  • Co-design prenatal education and other important initiatives at PSBC with patients/clients e.g., Parent resources evaluation – with patient participation
