Long Term Care Today 

Long Term Care Today is the official magazine publication of the Ontario Long Term Care Association and is a reliable source of current, authoritative educational information for Canadian long-term care operators, managers and staff. It is published three times per year, with a readership of 5,800, including owners, operators, administrator and other professionals in long-term care and related careers across Canada. Supplementary distribution includes key health-care stakeholders, such as government and sector/industry-related organizations.

The aim of each article in our magazine is to share information that will improve the quality of life of residents living in long-term care and have a positive impact on the work and visiting environment for staff, family, volunteers and visitors. Long Term Care Today is not a peer-reviewed clinical journal, but does solicit unbiased articles from qualified experts, researchers and health care professionals with an interest in knowledge transfer. All sources and references must be cited. Submissions are made on a volunteer basis without any form of compensation.

Long Term Care Today is now published two times per year by the Ontario Long Term Care Association.
