Future Care for Canadian Seniors: A Webinar Primer on Nursing Supply and Demand

Across Canada, health system reform in provinces and territories is addressing the health and social care needs associated with an aging population. Continuing care supports for seniors (i.e., care and services provided in homes, retirement communities, long-term care, and other facilities in the community) are key to these reforms. The services provided by regulated nurses are an important component of continuing care for seniors, and so it is critical to understand the contribution and requirements of nursing in this sector. This 45-minute webinar examines the current role of nurses in continuing care, leverages The Conference Board of Canada’s 2015 report Future Care for Canadian Seniors: A Status Quo Forecast to estimate the nursing demand to provide these supports over the next 30 years, and explores the optimization of nursing roles in this context.

Improving Home Care Standards: An Innovative Approach to a National Challenge

In 2016, three national health care organizations, the Canadian Home Care Association (CHCA), the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) and the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) took up the challenge to improve home care in Canada. Through an innovative and collaborative approach, the Better Home Care National Action Plan was developed and launched on October 27, 2016. The innovative and creative approach was simple—listen and learn from the frontline. Through a series of national consultations (face-to-face and on-line) the Action Plan was developed and evolved to incorporate the experience and expertise of patients, government representatives, health care administrators, family doctors, nurses and home care providers from across Canada.

Palliative Care Matters: Fostering Change in Canadian Health Care

Palliative Care Matters was launched in June 2016 as an initiative championed by Covenant Health’s Palliative Institute, in partnership with 13 national health organizations. Building on a legacy of reports and recommendations on improving palliative care, and the slow pace of action, these organizations have called for shared, pan-Canadian leadership to ensure all Canadians with life-limiting illness have timely access to high quality, coordinated and integrated palliative care. The initiative is based on a three-phase approach: Talk—Understand—Do to foster a conversation between the public, researchers, and health system leaders on palliative care in Canada. Through an innovative consensus development model, a Lay Panel of 12 Canadians prepared a Consensus statement and recommendations. Our report, Palliative Care Matters: Fostering Change in Canadian Health Care, synthesizes the key themes and aspirations of the recommendations, provides insights on the mechanisms and strategies that could be adopted to realize those aspirations, and identifies potential next steps as initiative takes its next steps in the coming months. In this webinar, Konrad Fassbender from Covenant Health will provide an overview of the Palliative Care Matters initiative, including the context and unique approach used, and the Consensus Statement of the Lay Panel. Report author, Carole Stonebridge, will share the findings from the Conference Board’s analysis, including insights on next steps in moving from the Lay Panel aspirations and recommendations to feasible, actionable policies.

Navigating Health Care for Children: The NaviCare/SoinsNavi Solution

People with complex health conditions use a significant percentage of our health system resources. As individuals, they are faced with the constant struggle to manage their condition while navigating an increasingly complex health and social services system. This struggle can be even more acute when the patient is a child. The impact of care for children affects all family members; dealing with multiple care providers, travelling to distant specialty clinics and hospitals, restrictions in access, and other financial challenges. 15-18% of North American children have been diagnosed with a complex health condition. In light of this, the New Brunswick Children’s Foundation awarded a $750,000 grant to fund research on the implementation of a family-centred navigation service called NaviCare/SoinsNavi. Led by researchers from the University of New Brunswick and Mount Alison University, who partnered with Sykes Assistance Services Corporation, NaviCare/SoinsNavi’s vision is that every child with a complex health condition receives the treatment they require, in a timely manner and in the appropriate setting for their family.

Placemaking & Mobility: Creating Healthy, Sustainable Communities using Evidence-Based Healthy Built Environment Indicators

As cities continue to rapidly evolve, urban planners and leaders are searching for evidence-based methods to inform decisions that may impact the future health, economic prosperity and environmental sustainability of their communities. But what are these methods and their indicators? How can decision makers ensure they’re using the right information at the right time, and for the right reasons? This webinar will outline the state of research and practice related to the use of Community Design Indicators (CDIs) that can be used to quantify and visualize healthy built environments (HBEs). Anthony Smith will review existing evidence linking placemaking and urban mobility principles to direct and indirect population health and community well-being impacts. He will also highlight existing HBE frameworks such as the BC Healthy Built Environment Toolkit and introduce the comprehensive Community Design Indicator (CDI) framework, which provides objective indicators that can be calculated using Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Several project case studies will then be presented to highlight how CDIs can be used in professional planning practice to compare neighbourhoods or evaluate future growth scenarios.
