WEBINAR – Champlain BASE eConsult Expansion in Long-term Care in Ontario
BRUYÈRE CLRI WEBINAR SERIES
eConsult allows physicians to consult with specialists across the province in order to provide their patients with the best care possible. We are implementing the Champlain BASE™ eConsult service in Ontario’s long-term care homes in order to improve integration of care, patient safety, and quality of life for complex aging residents. We will use an implementation approach well established through our successful eConsult service. Our approach includes maintaining a focus on the primary problem (poor access to specialists); building strong, meaningful partnerships with local clinical and community champions; using a simple, straightforward, low cost technology platform; providing opportunities for continuous feedback and improvement of the service based on participants’ needs; and integration of long-term care home needs into the planned expansion of eConsult at a provincial level.
This webinar will discuss:
- eConsult background and origins
- The need for specialist access in long-term care
- What we know about the benefits of eConsult
- The current project
- How to become involved in the program
- Q&A and next steps
