The Rehabilitative Care Alliance (RCA) works with partners across the province to strengthen and standardize rehabilitative care in Ontario through better planning, ongoing evaluation and quality improvement, and the integration of best practices across the care continuum.
RCA initiatives promote rehabilitation as an essential component of connected care. Initiatives include:
A detailed list of activities for all RCA initiatives is found here.
The RCA provides guidance, tools and support to regional bodies, OHTs and health service providers to help them implement change. Our work is guided by available evidence and data and by the active participation of stakeholders across the province, including patient and family representatives.
The Rehabilitative Care Alliance was established by the LHINs in 2013, which continue to fund the RCA.
The RCA benefits from the support and expertise of the GTA Rehab Network, which has provided secretariat infrastructure and support to the RCA since its inception. While the RCA and GTA Rehab Network are separate entities, some secretariat staff are cross-appointed to both.
