Behavioural Supports Integrated teams

  • Explain the critical framework that has been developed and why Behavioural Supports Ontario is evolving towards an amalgamated team model (internal and external teams) to support individuals and teams that work specifically with those who present with responsive behaviours so that people can be supported where they are, receive access to organizations/services throughout the community and facilitate transitions when required.
  • Identify the critical elements for experiencing successful transitions using the combined team approach across sectors and across providers; from the perspective of persons with lived experience and from the perspective of providers within the health care team.
