The RCA's Direct Access Priority Process (DAPP) and other Assess & Restore initiatives across the province are designed to improve care for frail seniors.
DAPP supports early identification of individuals with restorative potential who require inpatient rehabilitative care and facilitates referrals directly from the community. The process is being implemented by various health service providers across the province.
The RCA supports the LHINs and Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care with A&R-related initiatives through evaluation and knowledge exchange activities.
The RCA is also working with stakeholders to develop and implement evidence-informed care processes for older adults, such as secondary fall prevention care pathways. A more detailed list of all activities for all RCA initiatives is found here.
