Home and Community-Based Services for Children with Complex Care Needs

Children and youth with complex care needs are among the most vulnerable populations served by our health and social care systems.   Provinces and territories are initiating strategies to address challenges and maximize opportunities to improve and enhance care and services for children with complex care needs and their families.  

This report describes the findings of a pan-Canadian scan undertaken by the Canadian Home Care Association, in collaboration with key informants and subject matter experts, to gain an understanding of the current programs available through provincial and territorial governments for children with complex care needs.

Am I Safe



Providing safe health care in an unpredictable home setting poses unique challenges.  Living at risk is a personal choice and requires health care providers to engage patients and their carers in conversations about identifying, managing and mitigating risk.  

This pan-Canadian environmental scan of primary health care, acute care and home care stakeholders explored the availability and use of tools and resources to guide conversations about risk in the context of care in the home setting.  

The scan identified the need for resources for health care providers to help patients and their carers answer the question "Am I Safe?"
