Event Description:

POLICIES AND PROGRAMS THAT CONNECT PRIMARY HEALTH CARE TO SOCIAL SERVICES, PUBLIC HEALTH & COMMUNITY SUPPORTS IN CANADA: A COMPARATIVE POLICY ANALYSIS

TARA STEWART, COMMUNITY HEALTH SCIENCES

Abstract
Comprehensive patient care can require that primary healthcare providers connect patients to a range of non-medical services including (but not limited to) housing and income assistance, home care, and mental health support. Failure to connect to needed services can contribute to negative outcomes for both patients and the system: poor access, fragmentation of care, health deterioration, and eventual need for high intensity interventions. Across Canada, there are a range of strategies, programs, institutions, and services aimed at facilitating coordination across health and social sectors. This presentation describes a recently-funded CIHR-SPOR project that will identify and compare provincial/territorial initiatives with an emphasis on two priority patient populations: community-dwelling older adults experiencing functional decline, and children/youth with high functional needs.
