The Health of Older People Workstream (HOPWS) is enabling older people to live well at home and in their community through clinically-led service transformation. The Workstream provides oversight of the Canterbury health system’s strategic direction for older people, with a view towards an integrated system with accessible, organised and coherent services for older people in the community.

Previously the Aged Care Workstream, the HOPWS was established in 2009 as a key leadership and advisory group and aspires to extend independent living for older people. It has been instrumental in establishing several Service Level Alliances and new initiatives to transform services for older adults, including the Medication Management Service (MMS), Community Rehabilitation Enablement Support Team (CREST) and Falls Prevention.
