Last month, the Ontario CLRI team engaged with a large group of Extendicare leaders from across Canada. The focus was on how tools developed through the Ontario CLRI can help long-term care homes improve care and embrace innovation.

The Ontario CLRIs were invited to present at the Extendicare National Business Conference and Trade Show, in Toronto, on April 26, 2017. Entitled, “Ten Innovations to Help You Transform Your Home,” the presentation featured a variety of CLRI-developed approaches and free web-based resources to support the transformation of long-term care homes in the areas of culture change, learning, and staff engagement. The CLRIs shared the session with Charlene Chu from AGE-WELL and the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute.

The Ontario CLRI team also hosted an interactive booth to further showcase the work of the Program.
