Meeting the Future Need Through Specialization in Long-Term Care Homes
On January 28, 2016, the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) hosted a webinar that presents the most current context for specialized units in Ontario, why select long-term care (LTC) homes sought designation, and how these units fit into the continuum of care.
Specialized units are a unique service arrangement for Ontario’s LTC homes to expand the role they can play in the continuum of care. This webinar recording is based on an applied research project that conducted a multi-stakeholder consultation to learn about the experiences of LTC homes running designated specialized units or specialized programs. Consultation feedback on areas such as other client sub-populations that could benefit from new specialized units will help to provide a systems planning perspective.
