It is widely recognized that we have a responsibility as a system to improve our capacity to meet the needs of Ontarians with behaviours associated with complex and challenging mental health, dementia or other neurological conditions living in long-term care homes or in independent living settings. These behaviours have far reaching effects on individuals and organizations in all aspects of the health care system.
In January 2010 the start of an important initiative called the Behavioural Support Systems Project was announced. This project will be led by the North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Ontario, the Alzheimer Knowledge Exchange and supported by the Ontario Health Quality Council. At this time it is contemplated that the project will proceed in three phases, starting immediately with phase 1. The initial phase will focus on defining the population, proposing a system model and establishing an appropriate measurement and evaluation framework. The project team has begun their work and as first step would like to share the initial thinking on project design and deliverables with key stakeholders in the system. The presentation will also identify ways that you can both become involved and learn about the work as it progresses.
