Examining the Healthcare Experiences of Foreign-Born Older Canadians: A Pilot Study – Call for Participants
Overview: Although foreign-born older adults (immigrant seniors) are at a higher risk for certain chronic diseases and negative health conditions, limited Canadian studies have examined healthcare experiences of foreign-born older adults (FBOAs), and few have developed or proposed practical solutions to support patient engagement, system navigation ,and care coordination.
In April Health Quality Ontario received 1,024 Quality Improvement Plans (QIPs) from hospitals, primary care organizations, long-term care homes, and LHIN home and community care services across Ontario. All of the 2019/20 QIPs are now available on QIP Navigator.
These past few weeks have been very busy for AFHTO members. Given the demands on your time, we’ve responded by extending the deadline to submit abstracts for the AFHTO 2019 Conference “Health System Integration Built on the Foundation of Team-Based Primary Health Care”.
The call for Ontario Health Teams has gone out, signaling another phase in a major change to Ontario’s healthcare system. Within a very short span of time the landscape will look very different, so we need to make sure primary health care teams are as prepared as they can be.

The provincial government announced on Friday 15 sites were approved across Ontario "in areas with the greatest need."
On March 27, a webinar was held to discuss risk management and the board's role and leading practices.
It’s time to show everyone what you can do.
