On Friday, April 11th, 2014, the Ontario CLRI at Bruyère held its bi-annual Steering Committee meeting and Researchers’ Day at the Saint-Louis Residence in Orléans, Ontario. The joint-event allowed these groups to meet in person, discuss ongoing research projects, and share ideas among each other. The event also featured presentations from two of our researchers: Peter Tanuseputro, who presented on Health Care Use and Cost at End-of-Life, and Adrian Rohit-Dass, who discussed the development of a Health Human Resources Long-Term Care Forecasting Model for Ontario.
Our Steering Committee is comprised of key stakeholders from the LTC sector (e.g., health planners, associations, educational institutions, family/resident councils, LTC homes, etc.). The Committee aims to help ensure that the knowledge and tools developed through the Ontario CLRI are relevant, practical, and valuable to the LTC sector (in both French and English), and help them to meet their learning, research and innovation goals within the Champlain LHIN and provincially.
