Pandemic planning

Peel Long Term Care Pandemic Influenza Plan – 2012

The Peel Long Term Care Pandemic Influenza Plan - 2012 * was developed to guide long-term care staff in their response to a pandemic influenza in their community or centre.

The Plan:

  • Corresponds to the national, provincial and local pandemic responses and reflects current scientific knowledge and planning principles.
  • Is part of a comprehensive Emergency Plan for each of the Region of Peel’s Long Term Care Centres.
  • Was developed by Peel Long Term Care with support from expert resources.

Since Pandemic planning is an ongoing and dynamic process, the Plan will be reviewed on a regular basis in conjunction with the centres’ emergency plans, to ensure it remains aligned with national, provincial and local plans and reflects current knowledge on pandemic influenza.*

A Handbook for Long Term Care Staff - Second Edition

The content of this second-edition handbook** (PDF 594KB, 22 pages) has been expanded to include 5 additional barriers - prejudice and discrimination, limited scope of activities, poor communication, limited accessibility features, and lack of resources — that result from more than just cultural aspects.
