In April 2011, the Public Services Health and Safety Association (PSHSA) hosted a focus group on the issue of Transfer of Care that included a number of stakeholders along the continuum of care. The group identified several key issues and challenges in the transfer of care process, particularly around communication (transmitting timely and relevant information), collaboration (shared resources to coordinate care), and client health outcomes.
On April 30, 2012, PSHSA, OHA and OACCAC are offering a conference as the next step in moving towards safer transitions in care. The conference, called Employee Safety During the Transition of Care, will allow attendees to examine the challenges and opportunities to advance the safe transition of patients/clients and employees along the continuum of care encompassing acute and community care settings.
