Orientation eLearning: Wound and Skin Care in LTC











The Orientation eLearning courses, created by the Ontario CLRI at the RIA, provide education for new team members during orientation, and for existing team members during their annual training. These scenario-based learning courses ensure that learners have the knowledge and skills needed to assist the people they support and are in line with Ministry of Long-Term Care guidelines. They were developed using evidence-based best practices and adult education principles, in collaboration with subject matter experts and LTC leaders.

Skin and Wound Care in Long-Term Care is a self-paced Orientation course on skin and wound care that will equip or refresh long-term care team members on the knowledge and skills required to support residents. Taking care of a resident’s skin and preventing a breakdown of skin is an important part of care. It’s important for team members to understand skin integrity and wound care as skin breakdown can lead to infection and a decrease in resident’s quality of life. Our new course can equip clinical and non-clinical team members with the skills to prevent skin and wound care issues and to implement skin and wound care interventions connected to their role.
