Team-Based Virtual Care

Team-Based Virtual Care: Striving for Seamless Care

Virtual care facilitates patients’ and families’ inclusiveness in care planning, which improves the transition experience. This Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)-funded program adopts a Patient-Oriented Research (POR) and Integrated Knowledge Translation (IKT) approach via the diverse engagement of older adults, families, staff and policy-makers in all stages of the research.

This study aims to generate evidence to inform policy development for virtual team-based care planning of care transitions. It also empowers a marginalized population to be co-partners in driving health policy priorities, elevating their voices, and advancing equity.

Who are we working with?

We are partnering with PIECES Canada, the University of Western Ontario, the University of Victoria, and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority.
