We lead and collaborate on initiatives at the provincial, regional and local levels, and actively support healthcare system priorities by participating in policy and strategy development through thought leadership. For highlights of select initiatives from the past year, please click here to see our 2017 Annual Report. For our 2017-2018 Operational Plan, click here.
Some of our current initiatives include the following.
Senior Friendly Care
In October 2017 we launched the sfCare Framework as a foundation for improving care for older adults across the healthcare continuum. The framework will guide collaborative quality improvement and will foster integrated work toward common goals to improve care for older adults through the coordinated efforts of multiple providers across sectors.
Senior Friendly Hospitals
As part of our work on the pan-LHIN Senior Friendly Hospital (SFH) strategy, we led the launch of SFH ACTION (Accelerating Change Together in Ontario) in 2015; a complex knowledge-to-practice (KTP) initiative. We continue to support this collaborative of 87 hospitals with 400+ participants, who are working together and sharing their successes in quality improvements that focus on senior-friendly care for hospitalized older adults.
TCLHIN Planning and Coordination for Specialized Geriatric Services (SGS)
The Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (TCLHIN) has enhanced our role, which now includes system level coordination and performance management for SGS not only for our participating organizations, but across the LHIN.
