The Continuing Care Resolution Team (CCRT) was created in July 2014 to respond to continuing care challenges and address them head on. They were tasked with providing a high level review of home care, supportive living and long term care.
The team began a conversation with Albertans - reviewing and responding to concerns and engaging with clients, families, the public and stakeholders in order to listen to their experiences.
Over 1,000 people participated in the conversation – sharing their personal experiences, expertise, insight and wisdom in an effort to create recommendations that would help AHS improve continuing care for all Albertans.
The review process resulted in the development of 17 recommendations, building on existing strengths identified within the system and identifying opportunities for improvement. A comprehensive internal and external consultation was also undertaken to ensure the proposed recommendations address the identified concerns and to guide us in making the necessary changes in the system.
