Complex and Frail Elderly Patients

Residential Care Initiative


Aim:
 Improve medical care for residential care patients by implementing five best practices:

  • 24/7 availability and on-site attendance when required
  • Proactive visits to residents
  • Meaningful medication reviews
  • Completed documentation
  • Attendance at case conferences

Physician Lead: Dr. Bryan Norton

Project Lead: Emilie Desmottes - edesmottes@divisionsbc.ca

Partner: VCH

Funding Sources: GPSC

 

The GPSC introduced the residential care initiative (RCI) in response to the growing senior population and a downward trend in the number of physicians providing services to seniors in residential care. The GPSC is supporting local groups of physicians to build local, scalable, and sustainable solutions. The RCI was launched on the North Shore in June 2016 and all 12 facilities are now involved. Approximately 20 local physicians are participating in the program.
