Alberta Continuing Care Act Effective April 1, 2024

References to continuing care (including home care, designated supportive living, long term care and hospice) may not reflect the updated language or terms found in the new Alberta Continuing Care Act effective April 1, 2024. Refer to the Continuing Care Glossary for definitions.

The Seniors Health Strategic Clinical Network brings together a diverse group of stakeholders – clinicians, researchers, patients, families, and decision makers – to reshape and improve health care services and practices that enable seniors to optimize their health, well-being and independence.

We are working on the most effective ways to meet the healthcare needs of Alberta’s seniors based on evidence and best practices within Alberta and around the world.


Appropriate Prescribing & Medication Use Strategy for Older Albertans (APMUSOA) was created as a guide to achieve a systems approach in implementation of appropriate prescribing and improved medication use initiatives in older adults, across diverse healthcare settings such as acute care/ hospital, primary care, community and continuing care.
