Creating a Regional Vision for Campuses of Care


The Centre for Aging and Health led this exciting and important project to define a vision of the Campus of Care concept for Vancouver Coastal Health. The primary goal was to develop a framework from which Health Service Delivery Areas can develop their campuses of care. This will ensure that future Campuses of Care are designed using a regional vision and approach and model best practices. The project defined a regional strategy and vision for geographic campuses of care by developing a regional definition and specifying key components that must be included in a geographic campus of care. This was achieved by interviewing Health Service Delivery Area stakeholders to understand current plans and commitments and conducting a complete literature review examining existing models and stakeholders to help identify best/better practice. The Centre is also involved in the development of Providence Health Care's Campus of Care.
