LTC Quality Improvement

LTC+: Acting on Pandemic Learning Together

From 2020 to 2022, this program brought together more than 1,500 homes caring for older adults in congregate settings to navigate challenges and opportunities related to the COVID-19 pandemic and enhance their organization’s skills and resilience. Teams received funding and coaching, and participated in virtual learning and peer support opportunities.

This program focused on creating ways for teams to learn from and with each other in six key areas:

  1. preparation
  2. prevention
  3. people in the workforce
  4. pandemic response and surge capacity
  5. planning for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 care
  6. presence of family

LTC+ was delivered by HEC with support from the BC Patient Safety and Quality Council, Shared Health (previously Manitoba Institute for Patient Safety), New Brunswick Association of Nursing Homes and CADTH, with additional funding support from the CMA Foundation.
