Exploring The Complexity of Care Planning in Ontario’s Long-Term Care Homes: Bruyère CLRI Presents at AdvantAge Ontario’s Annual General Meeting and Convention (April 21, 2017).

The Bruyère C​LRI was proud to present our work on plan of care compliance at the recent AdvantAge Ontario Conference. We jointly delivered with Wellington Terrace, a long-term care home in Fergus, which has consistently focused on care planning as an integral part of high quality care delivery. The many questions from a packed room ensured a dynamic session and confirmed the relevance of this topic.


Since 2015, the Bruyère CLRI has been working in close partnership with AdvantAge Ontario and the Ontario Long Term Care Association to better understand the facilitators and challenges related to compliance with the plan of care regulations of the Long-Term Care Homes Act. During the presentation, we shared our findings from interviewing those homes that have consistently demonstrated – through resident quality inspections – the highest degree of compliance with plan of care regulations. To guide these interviews, we conducted a literature review on the challenges and solutions to implementing optimal evidence-informed care planning for long-term care residents.
