The Ontario CLRI and Surge Learning Inc. are excited to announce a partnership intended to facilitate and further enhance the ease of access to relevant and valuable educational content to team members in the long-term care (LTC) industry across the province. The content will focus on best practices, as well as priority topics such as clinical nursing leadership, end-of-life care, dementia care, acute deterioration, and much more.
Supervisors, administrators, and educators will be able to easily access and assign high-quality eLearning courses developed by the Ontario CLRI via Surge’s learning management system (LMS) portal, which many LTC homes already have access to. LTC Homes will be able to offer team members a collection of dynamic and interactive courses specific to their care environment.
A catalogue of Ontario CLRI learning opportunities will be available on the Surge platform in Summer 2021. New courses will be made available on a regular basis to continue to meet learners’ needs.
“This collaboration offers team members enjoyable learning opportunities in the platform they already know and use, with content that helps staff be better equipped for their roles and to provide quality care to residents in long-term care.” Sophie Orosz, Manager, Ontario CLRI at Bruyère
“We at Surge Learning are excited about this truly collaborative partnership. Staff in Ontario’s long-term care homes can now easily access a multitude of relevant and meaningful topics offered by our two organizations. These learning opportunities bolster essential skills and support staff in the delivery of quality care to the residents that call long-term care homes, their home.” Tulia Ferreira, President and CEO, Surge Learning Inc.
