High Impact Practices






 In 2006, the CHCA launched our High Impact Practices initiative to promote innovative practices in the home care sector and to facilitate learning and knowledge exchange among our stakeholders.


“High Impact Practices” are community based programs that improve the quality of life for clients and positively impact health care providers and our health care system.
