The 2017 Home Care Summits focused on three key elements required to make home care better.
"Think Nationally" - Exploring Home Care Challenges
How can we achieve a vision of home, not a hospital or long-term care facility, as the best place to recover from an illness or injury, manage long-term conditions, and live out ones’ final days?
What systems, models, indicators, human resources and technology are required to effectively provide home care for older adults with frailty, individuals with complex, chronic disabling conditions, and those at end-of-life?
"Act Locally" - Creating Practical Solutions
The 2017 Home Care Summits explored these questions and identified actions to achieve more and better home care.
Held in strategic three locations across Canada – Halifax, Toronto and Edmonton, the Summits provided opportunities to discuss jurisdictional priorities and learn from home care leaders across Canada and internationally. The overachieving theme of “Making Home Care Better “was reflected at each Summit and supported by lively discussions on ways to ensure sustainable care, integrated care and accountable care. Home care leaders and experts from Canada and around the world, participated in these exciting events either in-person or through the new live-streaming option.
Thank you to our 2017 Home Care Summit sponsors, speakers, and participants for making this years’ event a huge success !
