Session Three: Engagement and Education
January 15th, 2014 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST

Summary: If we want to work side-by-side with Primary Care to improve care for seniors with complex care needs in this setting we must find meaningful ways of engaging primary care in the conversation. Discover how the Central LHIN is doing this through the BSO project. By having one-on-one dialogue with primary care providers about their needs related to caring for this patient population, effective responses can be formulated. In many cases these needs can be met through a variety of education opportunities.
