Ontario Renews CEoL Education Fund for Palliative and End-of-Life Training in LTC

Posted On: November 15, 2021

Ontario LTC homes can once again access free training to enhance their team members’ skills in both palliative care and end-of-life care! Our Communication at End-of-Life (CEoL) training program has been revamped and renamed to All-In Palliative Care: The Team Approach to LTC.

This training is still made possible through the CEoL Education Fund, which provides tuition and backfill funding for interprofessional team members to participate in the virtual delivery of this program.

The All-In Palliative Care Training Program is an evidence-informed training program that will boost interprofessional care delivery and improve team-wide communication through interactive scenario-based learning on the psychosocial aspects of care.

“The delivery of high-quality palliative care and end-of-life care has always been an important part of resident-centred care. With the challenges brought on by COVID-19 pandemic, it has become crucial to equip team members for this daily reality in order to alleviate staff burnout, ensure the continued quality of life for residents, being present to provide family members with support, and more” says Heidi Sveistrup, CEO, Chief Scientific Officer and VP, Research and Academic Affairs at the Bruyère Research Institute. 

 By participating, your team will: 

  • Be able to clarify the difference between palliative care and end-of-life care;
  • Learn how to strengthen the integration of an interprofessional approach to palliative care; and  
  • Develop improved communication skills to interact within the interdisciplinary team, with residents and their families.

Due to challenges brought on by the pandemic, this training will be delivered in a 7-hour virtual course instead of the train-the-trainer model used in previous years. One hour of prerequisite eLearning will need to be completed prior to attending the interactive virtual training.

Ontario LTC homes can apply from November 15 to December 23, 2021.

Apply today!
