The Prevention of Error-Based Transfers (PoET) Project is an award-winning, Ontario-based Ethics Quality Improvement project that aims to reduce consent-related errors in long-term care homes, and the transfers to hospital that can follow.


Led by Dr. Jill Oliver and Dr. Paula Chidwick and developed at William Osler Health System’s Ethics Quality Improvement Lab in Brampton, Ontario, PoET has developed through close collaboration with staff, physicians, residents and family members from long-term care. 


By participating in PoET, long-term care homes make a commitment to change decision-making habits in their home in order to align with Ontario’s patient-centered Health Care Consent Act.
