The Outreach Team helps to provide the right care, delivered at the right time, in the right place, by the right mix of health professionals in collaboration with our long term care partners.
With early initiation of treatment for acute illness in the LTCH and early intervention for management of a chronic disease exacerbation we can significantly reduce ED visits and subsequent admissions can be avoided for Long Term Care (LTC) residents. Our team consists of two nurse practitioners that go into the LTC homes and provide assessment, consultation and education to members of the LTC team and families.
Patients are identified by long term care team and caregivers.
