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.
