This project was a process evaluation of an initiative of the Northern Health Strategy Working Group (NHSWG).  The initiative, entitled Shared Paths for Northern Health, is funded by the Primary Health Care Transition Fund, Aboriginal Envelope, Health Canada.  The goal of the initiative is to utilize the working relationships among the working group partners to move to a primary health care approach within northern Saskatchewan which is comprehensive, accessible, coordinated, accountable, sustainable, and of good quality. 

Goals/Outcomes:  The goal of the evaluation was to evaluate the process undertaken by the partners of the Northern Health Strategy in conducting the primary health care transition project to assess how well the process/project worked, including both the successes and challenges, with the intent to determine where improvements in or changes to the process/project needed to occur to ensure that progress was made toward desired outcomes.
