Dynamic speakers, engaging dialogue and innovative thinking were all part of the third annual Thought Leadership Forum hosted by Ontario Shores. This year’s Thought Leadership Forum focused on minimizing seclusion and restraint in adolescents, seniors and emergency departments. Participants from across Canada came together to discuss how to make significant change in practice, particularly for these patient populations.
“The Thought Leadership Forum brings leaders together to create a system-wide change in practice,” says Glenna Raymond, President and CEO. “At Ontario Shores we identified the minimization of seclusion and restraint as one of our strategic goals. This has involved a change in philosophy, practice, policy and new education for staff.”
In 2010-2011, Ontario Shores decreased the use of mechanical restraints by 80%. To hear from staff about this transition, click here to watch the videos.
