sfcareframeworkcoverThe goal of senior friendly care is to achieve the best possible health outcomes for older adults. The sfCare Framework provides the foundation for achieving this goal through guiding principles and defining statements which are intended to foster improvements in care across the system and inspire greater collaboration between older adults and their caregivers, care providers, and organizations.

sfcarecover"The Senior Friendly Care (sfCare) Getting Started Toolkit  is a companion resource to the sfCare Framework.
It helps your healthcare organization assess where they are on their sfCare journey, and provides practical resources for implementing real change. This toolkit helps answer questions like:

  • How do we implement the sfCare Framework?
  • How do we know how senior-friendly our organization is, and what can we do to improve?
  • How do we compare to other organizations like ours?
  • What is a "senior-friendly lens"?

The sfCare Framework provides a foundation for achieving the best possible outcomes for older adults. The Framework’s guiding principles and defining statements collectively describe what senior friendly care looks like, but it is not a “how to guide”.

The Toolkit helps bring this foundational vision to life by providing actionable recommendations and resources. The Senior Friendly Care Getting Started Toolkit includes:

  • Self-Assessment Tool
  • Implementation Resources
  • Intro to sfCare training

The sfCare Getting Started Toolkit will be updated regularly with new tools and resources. The most recent version of this toolkit is available at https://www.rgptoronto.ca/resources/sfcare-tools/

bwss cover gptips"On World Health Day, April 7, 2018, Battered Women’s Support Services launched the #SomeMenBreakMoreThanHearts initiative, designed to raise awareness of violence against women in intimate relationships, and provide resources to family physicians throughout B.C.

The campaign includes an information and resource kit for general practitioners throughout B.C.. It’s designed to help practitioners better identify and respond to women who may be experiencing violence in an intimate relationship; and offer resources that are available to support women, including immediate safe places to go, crisis support, and ongoing counselling.

The medical community plays a key role in early detection, intervention, provision of specialized treatment and effective referral of survivors of violence in intimate relationships helping alleviate the physical, sexual and emotional consequences."
