Advancement of Community Practice

The Advancement of Community Practice (ACP) Initiative is a strategic way of working in the community to move programs and services forward to meet rapidly changing health system needs.

The ACP initiative aims to create an environment of continued learning, operationalize best practice, increase access and enhance capacity in the Mississauga Halton LHIN community through the work of our six collaborative groups: Responsive Behaviours, Caregiver Respite Program, Exercise and Fall Prevention, Regional Continence, Medication Management and Supportive Housing, Assisted Living, Attendant Care and Acquired Brain Injury.

A seventh group, the Education and Development Collective, supports the education initiatives of all six collaboratives, while also identifying and being responsive to community education needs.


Education and Development Collective

The Education and Development Collective is focusing on Mississauga Halton LHIN health service providers and informal caregivers/family to enhance and strengthen the capacity of direct care providers (informal and formal caregivers) to acquire new skills and to transfer new knowledge and best practice learnings regionally and between collaboratives.
