The Regional Geriatric Program central’s strategic plan was last updated in 2016, and can be accessed here.

A key to the success of any regional program is the degree of collaboration that is evident when developing and implementing strategic plans. Our regional program has the privilege of working with many diverse partners across the continuum of care. We recognize productive working relationships help produce outcomes that are:

  • Sustainable as a result of stakeholder feedback and “buy in”
  • Broadly supported in the community,
  • Enriched through healthy debate and discussion
  • Focus projects and reduce redundancy of effort and
  • Recognize the interdependency of system components in the delivery of care (we can’t afford to work in isolation of each other)

We have a working relationship with the following sectors, organizations and committees:

  • Acute Care
  • Long Term Care
  • Community Care Service Providers
  • Primary Care
  • Complex Continuing Care
  • Geriatric Psychiatry
  • Geriatric Medicine
  • Local Health Integration Networks (3, 4 and 6)
  • Gilbrea Centre for Studies in Aging, McMaster University
  • Dementia Networks
  • Seniors Health Research Transfer Network (SHRTN)
  • Regional Specialized Geriatric Services committees
  • Dementia Networks
  • Geriatric Research Groups
  • Psychogeriatric Resource Consultants
  • Seniors Coalition groups
