Member Forum: The Evolving State of Seniors’ Campuses: Where to Next?

THURSDAY APRIL 20, 2017
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

One of the major thrusts in OANHSS’ Provincial Budget submission this year is the need for government to support and facilitate seniors’ campuses. These somewhat overlooked service models hold major promise from a number of perspectives. They can decrease demand for long term care, improve service quality and system responsiveness, as well as sustain or improve the overall quality of health and social well-being of seniors.
This special two-hour session will provide a forum for a discussion of members’ experiences in developing and managing seniors’ campuses. Member presentations will be followed by a discussion of the benefits, challenges and future of seniors’ campuses with leading researchers and government decision-makers.
 
Subject matter will include:
  • Relationship of seniors’ campuses with the local community.
  • Impediments to service access within seniors’ campuses.
  • Outcome and other quality improvements for seniors and the seniors’care system.
  • Policy and program innovations that could enhance the operational effectiveness of seniors’ campuses.
