Ontario Health-Quality Standards feedback

Ontario Health, in partnership with the Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health has drafted a quality standard for care for young people who are transitioning from youth to adult health care services. We are hoping for your help in collecting feedback on this draft.  


This quality standard outlines what quality care looks like for young people aged 15 to 24 years who are transitioning from youth to adult health care services based on the best evidence and with input from clinicians and people with lived experience. 


Quality standards are designed to improve care in Ontario and target priority areas in need of improvement. They will help:

  • Patients, residents, families and caregivers know what to discuss about their care with their health care professionals;
  • Health care professionals offer the highest-quality care based on the best available evidence;
  • Health care organizations and professionals measure, reflect on their practice and improve the quality of their care; and
  • Health system planners create the environment for health care professionals and organizations to deliver quality care.


We hope you will provide us with your feedback on the draft transitions from youth to adult health care services quality standard. View the draft quality standard in the online form (links below).  The deadline to provide feedback is November 22, 2021.
