IHSTS is pleased to announce that the report on our Home Care Workshop is now available! On June 11th and 12th IHSTS, in affiliation with the Canadian Home Care Association, hosted a workshop entitled A Roadmap for Home Health: Accelerating Best Practices in BC.

The Workshop Report features summaries of all the presentations we heard during the two days, the exciting new policy coming out of the Ministry, and the takeaways from our thought provoking round table discussions.
