Toronto Central LHIN Long-Term Ventilation Strategy
The “pull” strategy is a multi-sectoral collaboration between the patient and family, acute care facility and community support services and primary care with a common goal of discharging an individual in an ICU to a more appropriate setting. A partnership of coordination from West Park and Toronto Central CCAC work in partnership to identify patients who are at risk of becoming long-term ventilated.
