The Schlegel Centre for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care and the Research Institute for Aging are co-hosting the next Culture Change Exchange on Thursday, March 16th, 2017 in-person and via online livestreaming.


Culture Change Exchanges are fun and interactive events with many participants from Ontario long-term care homes and others across Canada! They aim to educate, support, and inspire individuals and organizations to shift away from institutional, medical models of care toward social models that embrace living.


The March 2017 Culture Change Exchange keynote speaker is Daniella Greenwood, Strategy and Innovation Manager at Arcare. Dr. Al Power, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Rochester and International Educator on Transformational Models of Care for Older Adults, will also be speaking at this event.
