COMMUNITY GUIDELINES

Welcome to the Canadian Society for Long Term Care Medicine,

 

This forum is a place to share ideas amongst like-minded Long Term Care professionals.  The CSLTCM is focused on highlighting working examples of patient-centred care, identifying gaps in service and care, and representing the workplace interests of providers.  

We are shaped by the expertise and wisdom of this group; help us make it a place for intelligent, insightful and entertaining conversation.  We understand that conversations can get spirited (the best ones do!), but please be constructive.
