Quality – aiming for excellence in continuing care service delivery;
Collaboration – effective partnerships with key stakeholders to achieve best results;
Communication – proactive and effective communication to and from member organizations and other stakeholders;
Evidence – advocacy and decisions based on available qualitative and quantitative evidence;
Accountability – setting expectations, monitoring performance, reporting on outcomes, and demonstrating value.
