Mise en œuvre de soins hiérarchisés : une étude de cas (Implementing hierarchized care: A case study) (january 2012)
Véronique Wilson, M.Sc., occupational therapist and clinical coordinator at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital, analyzed the implementation of hierarchized care in a Montréal-based CSSS. First, she compared the hierarchized care currently in place to stepped care models found in scientific literature. Then, the dynamic influence of contextual and organizational factors on the implementation of hierarchized care was examined using the Champagne model (2002).

The speaker's findings
Practical ways were developed to facilitate the implementation of hierarchized care in the study areas (CSSS Lucille-Teasdale, Louis-H. Lafontaine Hospital and Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital). This included having a secondary care specialist supporting primary care teams in the CSSSs, applying a buddy system between primary and secondary care clinicians, implementing several activities between establishments, etc.
