PFCC Implementation Toolkits

After six years of research supported by Health Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Saint Elizabeth partnered with the Alzheimer Society of Canada to develop, deliver and evaluate a Person and Family-Centred Care (PFCC) education program for direct care providers, support staff and management in seven pilot sites across Canada.

To support organizations in achieving excellence in the provision of Person and Family-Centred Care, we developed “A Guide for Implementing PFCC Education across Health Care Organizations” available in both English and French. In this guide we share: 

  • Our approach to PFCC education and what we learned at each stage of the process, including checklists of key considerations 
  • Detailed evaluation findings 
  • Challenges to practicing PFCC identified by participants 
  • Strategies to address these obstacles and support sustainability
  • A comprehensive approach to PFCC for health care organizations
