New eLearning Helps Team Members Learn Palliative and End-of-Life Communication Skills

Posted On: July 14, 2020

Transitioning to end-of-life care can be difficult, so it is crucial that long-term care teams develop communication skills to foster therapeutic relationships with residents and their families/friends.

The Ontario CLRI at Bruyere has released three eLearning modules that allows team members to experience communication at end-of-life training from anywhere! The eLearning course will develop or refresh communication skills to provide quality end-of-life and palliative care in long term care homes. The modules include a collection of interactive case scenarios that reflect the unique setting and context of care delivery in long-term care.

This eLearning training aims to replicate pieces of the in-person training. It allows all team members to dispel palliative care myths, learn how to recognize and accommodate the needs of those in mourning, and practice their end-of-life communication skills in three short, scenario-based modules.
