Saskatchewan Long Term Care Network

The Saskatchewan Long-Term Care Network is an independent collective of family members, researchers, clinicians, and trainees that formed in March 2020. We work together to provide evidence- and experience- informed strategies to long-term care stakeholders during the pandemic and beyond. Our work is founded on the belief that strong relationships between residents, families, health providers, and decision-makers is the key to a strong long-term care system. 

The Saskatchewan Long-Term Care Network is dedicated to relying on guidance from families and healthcare providers to inform activities that include research, knowledge mobilization, and supporting decision makers on policy and practice issues. The overall aim is to support Saskatchewan long-term care residents and their communities to achieve optimal well-being.
