2021 Leading Practice Awards from Accreditation Canada

Baycrest has been awarded five Leading Practice designations by Accreditation Canada. The Accreditation Canada Leading Practice award is a special recognition of an exceptional achievement in healthcare. To be recognized as a Leading Practice, the practice must be innovative and creative, client and family-centred, evaluated, able to demonstrate intended results, sustainable and adaptable.

The five Leading Practice awards are:

  • Antimicrobial stewardship program: indication prompt for antimicrobial orders

Supporting the seamless transfer of patient care and data-driven decision-making through the introduction of a Meditech prompt for order indications.

  • COVID-19 surveillance testing for patients with responsive behaviours

An interprofessional, person-centred approach to COVID-19 testing for early detection of asymptomatic cases among mental health inpatients.

  • Enabling patient and family engagement in care: establishing the design and development of a new Patient, Family and Consumer Education Program using a de novo needs assessment process

A novel discovery and current state needs assessment to examine patient education practices and the health literacy organizational culture at Baycrest.

  • Responsive behaviours in dementia: novel virtual behavioural support model during COVID-19

A virtual medical and behavioural support approach to treat patients with responsive behaviours in dementia in their own homes.

  • Virtual specialized geriatric services

An innovative suite of specialized services to support older adults to access needed virtual care through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Congratulations to the teams who worked on these leading practices for this outstanding achievement!
