The Ontario Fall Prevention Collaborative is a large group of professionals from key organizations involved in the planning and implementing of fall prevention interventions in Ontario.
PGLO works with local, regional and provincial partners to provide trusted and credible information and support to the efforts of Ontario Health Teams (OHTs), specific to the needs of an older adult population living with complexity.
The Indicators for Integrated Older Persons’ Care in Ontario Initiative will bring together older persons, caregivers, health professionals, researchers and policy makers to create a provincial performance measurement framework, indicators and data collection tools relevant to integrated health care for older persons living with complex and chronic health and social care needs.
This project contributes to a current state view of specialized geriatric services across the province of Ontario, with a focus on the supply and utilization of health services designed for older people living with frailty (e.g. referred to as specialized geriatric services). This work will contribute to future capacity planning to inform the planning, design and delivery of sufficient and appropriate services to meet the needs of older people living with frailty in Ontario.
CGA is the standard of care for specialized geriatric services for frail seniors. It can be initiated by any member of the interprofessional team who has received appropriate training. Through this structure, all team members function as geriatric assessors, sharing a common set of competencies. Team members together create a comprehensive plan of care, in collaboration with patients. It is the combination of interprofessional geriatric assessment data, physical assessment findings, analysis and synthesis of the clinical profile and development of a collaborative plan of care.
Senior Friendly Care is designed to help your healthcare organization assess where they are on their sfCare journey and provides practical resources for implementing real change. The sfCare Framework provides a foundation for achieving the best possible outcomes for older adults. The Framework’s guiding principles and defining statements collectively describe what senior friendly care looks like, but it is not a “how to guide”. The Toolkit helps bring this foundational vision to life by providing actionable recommendations and resources.
