The PREP LTC preceptor eLearning Course is a self-directed online learning solution consisting of eight interactive eLearning modules. Each module takes about 40 – 90 minutes to complete totalling seven hours of learning. The modules include downloadable resources, learning exercises and interviews with experts, which help LTC homes build positive placement experiences with PSW and nursing students as well as IENs.
PREP LTC will cover the backfill costs of team members acting in preceptor roles. Backfill payments are for completing all eight modules of the PREP LTC eCourse through the eLearning Hub. Backfill pay is $25 per hour x 7 hours = $175 per team member.
Backfill support is limited and provided on a first-come, first-served basis. To qualify for backfill, LTC homes can enroll in PREP LTC by visiting clri-prepltc.ca/funding. To learn more about and enroll in the free course, visit clri-prepltc.ca/education.
The PREP LTC eLearning Course was developed by the Ontario CLRI at Baycrest and is built on the success of the ministry-funded Preceptor Education Program (PEP) in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Western Ontario and with Fanshawe College School of Nursing.
PREP LTC is led by the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging in collaboration with the Ontario CLRI teams at Baycrest Health Sciences and Bruyère.
