Key principles were used during the planning phase of the WRaP 2.0: FASD Coaching Partnership Project to ensure that formal decisions reflected effective ways to achieve the project objectives while taking into account diverse perspectives, needs, and impacts of stakeholders. The principles of planning included:
- Collaboration across ministries and stakeholders creates a shared understanding of FASD across the lifespan.
- Individuals affected by FASD and their caregivers need local access to services and supports as needed.
- Community input is an important and fundamental component of planning for services related to FASD. This includes Indigenous and cultural groups.
- Evaluation and research inform quality improvement practices and strategic planning.
- Continued integration is integral to the strategic and operational planning processes.
