ACEAbout the Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Collaborative

The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement, in partnership with the Canadian Frailty Network (previously Technology Evaluation in the Elderly Network, TVN), has launched a 12-month quality improvement collaborative aimed at supporting elder-friendly models of care and practices.

A total of 18 improvement teams across Canada and internationally have been accepted into the collaborative and are receiving funding, coaching, educational materials and tools to support the adaptation of Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital’s Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Strategy elder-friendly components to their local context. The initiative will support the teams to become experts in healthcare practices that benefit older patients in the communities where they reside, improve patients’ experience of care, coordination of care and system outcomes (e.g., reduced hospital use, patient complications, etc.).
