Integrating Care for Older Persons: If It's Such a Great Idea Why Haven't We Done it Yet?HSPRN Symposium


This half-day symposium examines ongoing challenges and opportunities for integrating community-based supports and primary health care for older persons and caregivers.  It asks the question: if integrating care is so promising, why is it so tough to achieve, and how can lessons learned locally and internationally be leveraged to move forward in Ontario?

There is growing international evidence that integrating care for older persons with ongoing, complex health and social needs is where you want to go: not only does greater integration promise better outcomes for older persons and their caregivers, it can make health care systems more cost-effective and sustainable. Yet, integrating initiatives in Ontario and elsewhere have been challenging to start, sustain, scale up and spread.
