Abstract

The development and implementation of a regional network that provides universally accessible and consistent services to the frail elderly living in Southwestern Ontario is described. Through continuous stakeholder engagement, clear network goals were identified and operationalized. Stakeholder commitment to the integration of expertise and specialized services, to evidence-based public policy and to iterative evaluation cycles were key to network success.
