The P.I.E.C.E.S. Approach

P.I.E.C.E.S.™ is a holistic, person, and care partner centred collaborative approach which enhances capacity at the individual, TEAM, organization and system levels to support older adults who are living with complex chronic conditions, including neurocognitive disorders (including but not limited to the dementias) and/or mental health needs and associated behavioural changes.

The P.I.E.C.E.S.™ approach provides a unique way of understanding the person’s multiple health challenges and associated risks, promoting enhanced quality of life by recognizing individual needs and building on strengths related to the person’s Physical, Intellectual and Emotional health, supportive strategies to maximize Capabilities, the individual’s social and physical Environment and Social self (cultural, spiritual, Life Story).

The P.I.E.C.E.S.™ Learning and Development Program provides health care practitioners across the continuum of care with a practical, reflective and evidence based approach to shared assessment, collaborative engagement and supportive care for older adults living with complex health challenges. It uses a shared solution finding framework to surface collective wisdom of the person, care partner and all TEAM members, focused on prevention, early detection and a continuous process for shared care, monitoring progress and minimizing disability. This framework complements and integrates other strategies, approaches and relevant bodies of knowledge. By providing a common set of values, a common language and a common yet comprehensive approach to collaboration, P.I.E.C.E.S. supports a shared accountability for person and care partner-directed care across the system of care; with an emphasis on health promotion, prevention, and chronic disease management.

Targeted learners are Regulated Health Professionals or those health care practitioners who have a clinical responsibility and accountability for shared assessment and shared care planning, who are interested in becoming a P.I.E.C.E.S. Resource Person within their organization. Developing the Core Competencies will require support from the organization’s senior leadership team and external partners such as the local Psychogeriatric Resource Consultant /Seniors Mental Health services/and other partners in care; this will improve TEAM and individual practices, and promote collaborative care.

Please note:  PSW's and other unregulated front line employees are not eligible to attend the P.I.E.C.E.S. Program.  Please consider the U-First! Program for these employees.
