The Saskatchewan Long-Term Care Network is an independent collective of family members, researchers, clinicians, and trainees that formed in March 2020. We work together to provide evidence- and experience- informed strategies to long-term care stakeholders during the pandemic and beyond. Our work is founded on the belief that strong relationships between residents, families, health providers, and decision-makers is the key to a strong long-term care system.
The Saskatchewan Long-Term Care Network is dedicated to relying on guidance from families and healthcare providers to inform activities that include research, knowledge mobilization, and supporting decision-makers on policy and practice issues. The overall aim is to support Saskatchewan long-term care residents and their communities to achieve optimal well-being.
