2013 Long-Term Care Task Force on Resident Care and Safety

The Long-Term Care (LTC) Task Force is pleased to present its first progress report (795KB pdf file). The LTC Task Force on Resident Care and Safety was established by the sector in November 2011, to respond to media reports and public concern about incidents of abuse and neglect in long-term care homes and an underreporting of these incidents. The Task Force has broad representation including a resident, family member, advocates, nurses, long-term care physicians, personal support workers, unions, and long-term care provider associations.

This progress report represents the first of six semi-annual progress reports that will be issued over the next three years. This report follows up on our commitment to implement the 18 multi-faceted actions contained in the original report released in May 2012. You can refer back to these original action statements within this document, and see the progress that has been made to date. Some stories have also been included to provide you with a glimpse of the changes underway. We have also set three-year targets in the form of outcome statements to guide our efforts.

We hope you will find that this first progress report demonstrates our commitment to transparency and to working steadily and collaboratively to improve the care and safety of residents.
