Behavioural Supports My Transitional Care Plan (MTCP) Tool
My Transitional Care Plan (MTCP) summarizes meaningful information that contributes to the facilitation of successful transitions across sectors. It was designed for use with older adults presenting with, or at risk of, responsive behaviours/ personal expressions associated with dementia, complex mental health, substance use and/ or other neurological conditions. MTCP can be used to share information between members of person's care team from both their existing and new location. Any healthcare provider who has assessment and/ or care planning in their scope of practice can fill it out.
MTCP was adapted from My Transitional Care Plan during the COVID-19 Pandemic (BSIT Collaborative, 2021) and My Transitional Care Plan (North Bay Regional Health Centre, 2019).
The tool is available for download as both a Microsoft Word and PDF Fillable Form. Supporting resources are also available, including guidelines for use and completed examples. English & Français
