Mandate I Final Report

RCA Final Report (April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2015)

In its first mandate, the Rehabilitative Care Alliance worked with stakeholders across the province to develop recommendations to improve rehabilitative care. Tools and resources were also developed to support implementation of the recommendations by LHINs and health service providers. The recommendations focused on the following outcomes: 

  • improved long-term clinical outcomes
  • increased community capacity for rehabilitative care
  • greater clarity on the eligibility and clinical components of rehabilitative care programs
  • direct admissions to bedded levels of rehabilitative care to avoid ER/acute care programs, and
  • better support for high risk older and medically complex adults with restorative potential. 

The final report summarizes the work of the first mandate and includes the resources that were created.
