The Royal’s innovative Flexible Assertive Community Treatment Team for Dual Diagnosis (FACTT DD) is improving care for persons diagnosed with both mental illness and an intellectual disability by delivering care close to home—throughout urban and rural communities.

Innovations on an evidence-based model from the Netherlands were developed for individuals with DD and implemented in the Champlain region to create the first FACT-DD team in Canada. The FACTT multi-disciplinary team, with its unique skill mix, was developed from an active waitlist management strategy in DD services and from provincial and local partnerships. The team addresses service availability challenges in urban and rural settings with the goal of optimizing outcomes for patients, families, and health care professionals across the health care system.

Join this webinar to learn:

  • How FACTT DD built on a successful model from the Netherlands and made it relevant to a local Ontario population.
  • Some highlights, successes, and insights from the FACTT DD model.
  • How the Royal has successfully made the case for continuing joint Ministry funding of the model and innovative outcome evaluation.
