Long-Term Care+: Acting on Pandemic Learning Together
Based on findings from a national qualitative review with family partners and health system leaders across Canada1, the Long-term Care+ program helps organizations prepare for and respond to future COVID-19 waves in six key promising practice areas: preparation; prevention; people in the workforce; pandemic response and surge capacity; providing quality and culturally safe care; and the presence of family.
