Residential Care Initiative

The GPSC’s Residential Care Initiative is designed to enable divisions to develop local solutions that improve the care of patients receiving residential care services.

The dedicated membership of this Division works towards providing the following services:
1. Proactive visits to residents
2. Meaningful medication reviews
3. Completed documentation
4. Attendance at Care Conferences
5. On call schedule

Our early wins include improved communications between physicians and facilities, reduced transfers to emergency, and a success call schedule program.

The Residential Care Advisory Committee, comprised of the Project Coordinator, physician representation from both call groups, all facilities, allied professionals and Patient Voices, meets regularly to discuss ongoing work, educational opportunities and areas for future development.

Please contact Project Coordinator Janet MacDonell at for further details
