    4. Achieve recognition as a progressive workplace.
    5. Advance system enablers to support needed changes.

      • The hospital’s role in care delivery and partnerships with other care provider organizations (other hospitals, primary care, CCACs, long term care homes) as well as community providers (police services, emergency medical services, community mental health agencies, etc.) specific to:
        • Enhancing coordination and transitions of care for the older adult.
        • Access to care (in-hospital care and referral to out-of-hospital care, i.e., discharge disposition).

        • Safety of care.
        • Patients’/families’ experience with care.
