Participants Needed For Research On: Returning Home After A Hospital Stay

Adapting hospital-to-home transitional care interventions to the Ontario rural healthcare context

Project Lead. Mary Fox, Associate Professor, York University

When hospital discharges are poorly planned, patients may not know how to manage their post-discharge care. They may need to visit the emergency room or be readmitted to the hospital. Hospital-to-home Transitional Care (TC) is provided by Ontario nurses to help patients and their families manage care after a hospital stay, but patients in rural areas have more emergency room visits and hospital readmissions than patients in urban areas. These trends indicate problems in TC in rural areas. Because TC was designed and evaluated with patients in urban areas, it may not meet the needs of rural patients or their families.

The overall goal of this study is to improve TC in rural areas in Ontario.

This goal will be achieved by inviting patients from rural areas, their families, and nurses who provide TC to them, to tell us how to revise TC to better meet their post-discharge care management needs. This will result in more relevant and feasible TC for people living in rural areas. The expected impacts are better prepared patients and families for managing care after hospital discharge, fewer emergency room visits and hospital readmissions, and cost savings to Ontario’s healthcare system.

Notice of Study Commencement

Marmora Water Supply – Class Environmental Assessment

The standpipe serving the Village of Marmora is at the end of its useful life and requires substantial repairs or replacement. Some areas of the village have lower than desired water pressure owing to the height of the existing tower. A Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study has been initiated to determine the preferred solution for ensuring a reliable municipal drinking water supply to meet existing demand and support future growth. The following water storage and supply options were considered:

  1. do nothing,
  2. refurbish and repair the existing standpipe,
  3. erect a new elevated storage tower, or
  4. erect a new standpipe.

Detailed evaluation of the alternatives has resulted in a recommendation to erect a larger standpipe at the present site and remove the existing standpipe. The project is proceeding according to the requirements for a Schedule B project.

The Class EA process includes consultation with the public and review agencies, an evaluation of viable alternative solutions, an assessment of the impacts of the alternative solutions, identification of measures to mitigate any adverse impacts, and the selection of a preferred solution.

Public input into the planning and design of this project is encouraged. If you have any comments or questions regarding this project, or would like to receive further information, please send an email before July 3, 2018 to one of the following project contacts:
