Shaping The Future Of Vascular Health: An Integrated Vascular Health Blueprint for Ontario

In 2010, the Cardiac Care Network of Ontario, Heart and Stroke Foundation and Ontario Stroke Network (Ontario organizations with mandates to improve vascular health) came together to form a coalition to map a new and better way of addressing the province's growing vascular related chronic disease burden. Over a series of meetings between October 2011 and February 2012, the Vascular Health Coalition's (VHC) advisory council developed and defined an Ontario Integrated Vascular Health Blueprint. This Blueprint is rooted in a vision of “an integrated, patient-centered, accessible continuum of high quality vascular health services and resources that facilitates and fosters improved vascular health, reduced incidence of vascular disease and reduced consequences of vascular-related diseases for all Ontarians.”
