Transitions in Care Initiative

Central Okanagan

Residential Care

In the Central Okanagan, the dynamics of aging patients being transferred between facilities involves separate systems and there is an identified need to focus on communication and relationships to sustain these systems. 

This work focuses on the patient journey and will create a network of care professionals and processes that deliver safe and timely quality care.  In addition, this project includes a polypharmacy risk reduction component.  Implications of polypharmacy are inherent with the transitions of patients and of particular interest with aging populations.
