  • How to implement a comprehensive approach to care
  • Measuring and documenting “comprehensive care” outcomes in older adults

The Goal

Need for Program

The recently released, 2nd edition of the NSQHS Standards (2018) includes the concept of comprehensive care. This concept of care has emerged in response to identified gaps and will likely drive health policies for the next several decades. Such patient centred care requires a holistic approach that goes beyond the disease process demanding health providers consider and respond to the complex needs of their patients / residents and the communities that are touched by them. As people are more likely to require comprehensive care as they age it is incumbent on all staff to be properly equipped to provide comprehensive care and ensure they comply with Standard 5 in order to achieve best patient/resident outcomes.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this two-day conference is to refresh and realign knowledge so as to confidently provide comprehensive care to older adults so as to achieve desired health outcomes.

Your learning outcomes:

Your documentation will include a full and detailed assessment of the psychosocial needs of your patient/resident
Older people in your care will experience a comprehensive approach to their care needs
Patients/residents who have cognitive impairment will be provided care that reduces the likelihood of falls
Your understanding of the concept of comprehensive care will result in less untoward events occurring in healthcare environments
