The Digestive Health Strategic Clinical Network (DH SCN) is a collaborative team of health care professionals, researchers, administrators, patients, community organizations, and others committed to improving the care of patients with digestive diseases, liver diseases, and cancers of the digestive system across the lifespan.
We are working on the most effective ways to meet the healthcare needs of Albertans with digestive health concerns based on evidence and best practices within Alberta and around the world.
DH SCN launched November 18, 2016. Next steps are developing the Transformational Roadmap (TRM) which is a 3 year strategic plan to outline the digestive health goals, priorities, and key initiatives of the DH SCN.
Vision: “The best digestive health for all Albertans.”
Mission: “Innovate and collaborate to create a person-focused high quality digestive health system through prevention and best practices.”
Ideas and input of all stakeholders, including patients and families, are welcome:
