NEW sfCare Resource – The SF7 Toolkit

The SF7 Toolkit supports clinical best practices for healthcare providers across the sectors of care and includes self-management tools for older adults and their caregivers. The toolkit provides a common practice framework that complements the unique skills and practices of the various care providers helping older adults. SF7 focuses on seven clinical areas that support resilience, independence, and quality of life: cognition (particularly delirium), mobility, social engagement, continence, pain, nutrition, and polypharmacy.
The integration of resources for healthcare providers across the sectors of care and for older adults and their caregivers in one package is unique; it transforms the traditional sector-silo approach in evidence-based clinical practice tools. This novel approach provides opportunities for greater understanding and collaboration across the continuum of care by focusing on informing and empowering older adults and their caregivers, and promoting relationship-centred partnerships.
Thank you to the 200+ people (older adults, caregivers, healthcare providers, and clinical subject matter experts) who contributed to the SF7 Toolkit by generously sharing their insights and expertise, and to the many who are now involved in the creation of version 2 which will include additional focus on caregivers and personal support workers.
The SF7 toolkit is available by individual topic, or bundled together. Click here to access the SF7 Toolkit.
