Alternate Level of Care (ALC) Capacity challenges and Long-Term Care Placement - A Roundtable Discussion: Key Messages and Suggested Actions (OHA and OACCAC paper): This report summarizes the discussions that emerged from a Roundtable, held in May 2012, to uncover the key issues impacting the interpretation of the legislation governing long-term care (LTC) placement, and offer potential systemic solutions to improve the transitioning of ALC patients waiting for LTC placement. The OACCAC and the OHA hope that the key messages and actions outlined in this report can contribute to future policy and planning discussions regarding ALC capacity challenges.
