STRATEGIC PRIORITIES 2013/15
HARMONIZED PRINCIPLES FOR HOME CARE
We encourage the adoption of harmonized principles for home care that guide policy and program development, support consistency and equity across the country, and facilitate benchmarking and sharing of best practices.
We advocate for strategies that meet the needs of family caregivers (respite, financial, education and skills, flexible work environments) and recognize, respect and support their integral role in our health care system.
INTEGRATED PERSON-CENTRED CARE
We champion the role of home care within an integrated, person-centred approach to health and wellness. Our focus includes integrated home care and primary health care; models to support complex, high needs clients; and integrated hospice palliative care.
Through our Home Care Knowledge Network, we engage policy planners, home care leaders and researchers in conversations and interactions that facilitate the sharing of experiences, expertise and research.
We advance the use of innovative technology to support independence and quality care in the home setting with an emphasis on supporting family caregivers and promoting client safety.
