Prioritizing sfCare in Ontario's healthcare transformation - mindset matters
The Ontario healthcare system is undergoing transformation, and with transformation often comes uncertainty. You might be asking yourself "where does sfCare fit with system priorities such as OHTs, ALC, and hallway healthcare?"
The answer depends on what your mindset is regarding sfCare. If sfCare is seen as a "project" or an "add on" to care, it may get lost in a list of ever changing and growing priorities. sfCare is intended to be a blueprint for achieving the best possible health outcomes for older adults, which should be woven into the fabric of care for every older adult, every day, across every part of the healthcare system. With this mindset, sfCare remains a constant priority; one which can have a positive impact on system priorities
such as ALC and hallway healthcare.
For providers who are preparing to become OHTs, t
sfCare Framework and implementation resources
can support your OHT readiness assessment as well as improvement in your level of readiness by implementing best practices for your older adult population.
