6.3. feedback from individuals and families is central to ensuring quality and effectiveness

6.4. access to internal review and an appeals mechanism is a fundamental right of individuals and families

6.5. an individual with complex needs requires a broadly based approach and should be viewed as a shared responsibility of the entire community

6.6. integration of services within a continuum of services should be achieved through complementary linkages and coordination

6.7. the CSCN process should perform an advocacy role with respect to needs on an individual and global basis

6.8. as much as possible, the needs of individuals and families should be met within their own community

6.9. residential and specialized care resources are limited and should be used effectively and efficiently
