Received 2012-586

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Carolyn Clubine, Director, Long Term Care, stated that the Peel Long Term Care Performance Management Reporting System was designed to integrate legislated measurement requirements, current performance measurement and monitoring systems in the Region of Peel and the Region of Peel’s commitment to providing high quality services while maintaining transparency and accountability. The performance measurement system considers five important categories: client satisfaction; employee engagement; resident focus; financial, and; health system participation.

To address some of the findings, staff will undertake a detailed review and update of the Falls Prevention Program and participate in the Health Services Volunteer Review to identify strategies and opportunities to enhance volunteerism. The areas of focus for quality improvement include new technology to improve resident care processes and accuracy of resident documentation; dietary improvements initiatives; improvement projects in each of the five long term care homes that are specific to their operations, and; process reviews related to nursing department roles and responsibilities and environmental cleaning practices in housekeeping.

Presentation by Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health

Received 2012-589

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, presented the findings of the Residential Preferences Survey, conducted in partnership with Toronto Public Health and the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GCRD), and implemented in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), City of Toronto, Metro Vancouver and the GCRD. A total of 1525 surveys were completed, with 25 per cent of the respondents from the GTA. The GTA survey results indicate that relative to residents who prefer and live in auto-oriented neighbourhoods, residents who prefer and live in highly walkable neighbourhoods walk 2.6 times as often for utilitarian purposes each week; use transit 2.5 times as often; drive 150 fewer kilometres per week; have lower body weights, and; lower numbers on the Body Mass Index. He stated that the results indicate an unmet demand for more walkable neighbourhoods in the GTA, and acceptance for walkable and healthy communities. The results of the survey will inform future collaborative work between Peel Public Health, other Regional departments and external stakeholders.

In response to a question from Councillor Tovey, Dr. Mowat stated that researchers at the University of Toronto have developed a method to calculate the cost impact of diabetes and changes in the prevalence of obesity. Region of Peel staff will be working with the researchers to calculate the implications for the Region of Peel, which has high diabetes rates, to enable the impacts to be expressed in terms of consequences. He confirmed that Peel Public Health will continue its cooperation with area municipal planning staff to help support the planning of healthy communities.

Councillor Mullin noted that the survey results should be considered by area Planning staff when commenting on development applications.
