    that were of interest to them. The groups were charged with answering the following questions:
    • If this change was achieved what would we see?
    • What is the current reality?
    • What do we need to do over the next 5 years to move toward this change?

    Here are their thoughts regarding the categories they chose: Achieving Change; Access to Services and, Collaborations.
