- How to implement a comprehensive approach to care
- Measuring and documenting “comprehensive care” outcomes in older adults
- How to effectively combine clinical and psychosocial care for patient satisfaction
- Managing the complexities of delirium
- How to implement novel approaches to risk reduction
- Using incident reports to improve care
- How to link prevention strategies to clinical outcomes and much, much more …
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.
