This website is a place where you can share your insights, experiences, and ideas in reducing impact on financial strain in your community.

Income is one of the most important factors that influences health. Financial strain is economic pressure that can cause stress and harm health.

Digital stories are a powerful way to create a meaningful discussion and simulate thoughtful change. We invite you to share the short videos with your teams, discuss what resonates (you may wish to use the questions at the end), what changes you might want to make and engage with others already doing this work using our Map and Forum.

The ‘Reducing the Impact of Financial Strain (RIFS)’ project will strengthen connections between community members and organizations including primary care teams. The aim is to collaboratively design local solutions to support health by addressing financial concerns in a sensitive, compassionate and sustainable way. While community looks at improving supports, Primary Care teams identify and support patients with financial concerns and help them access appropriate community supports.

  • We are excited to share and invite input from RIFS leads and stakeholders on the first draft of the infographic that can be used as one tool for other front line workers in community and health leaders and influencers supporting a health creating system to:

    • Increase dialogue and raise awareness of the impact of financial strain on an individual’s health.
    • Motivate and encourage system leaders to mobilize and bring together representatives of all sectors to collaborate and initiate collective action towards financial well-being for the whole community.
    • Embed financial strain as a go-to assessment for PCN staff and other frontline health care providers.
    • Raise awareness about resources and tools available for engaging and connecting with community-level partners and leaders.

    You feedback will be shared back with the developing team and incorporated into the next draft. In an effort to advance this work efficiently, Please provide feedback within the next 2-3 days. If you require more time, just let us know.
