The AUA approach is being implemented in 39 long term care homes in Newfoundland and Labrador and 9 in Prince Edward Island – representing all publicly funded homes in those provinces – and 5 from the Seniors Quality Leap Initiative, a North American network of long term care organizations focused on clinical care and the safety of seniors.


Newfoundland Teams  

PEI Teams 

Team from the Seniors Quality Leap Initiative (SQLI):

  • Perley & Rideau Veterans Health Centre, Ottawa, ON
  • Elisabeth Bruyère Hospital, Ottawa, ON
  • Schlegel Villages, Kitchener, ON
  • Hebrew Senior Living, Roslindale, Massachusetts, USA
  • St. Andrew’s Village, Presbyterian Senior Living Community, Indiana, Pennsylvania

In this 18-month province-wide program, teams will help to reduce the inappropriate use of antipsychotics and the risks associated with their use such as worsening cognitive functioning, confusion, dizziness, sleepiness, stroke and increase risk of falls. It will also improve the quality and experience of dementia care for residents, families and staff.
