New eLearning course on mandatory reporting and whistle-blowing!

Enhance your team’s knowledge of mandatory reporting and whistle-blowing with our new Orientation eLearning course!

The Ontario CLRI at the RIA has launched an engaging new eLearning Course, Mandatory Reporting and Whistle-blowing. Aligned with the Fixing Long-Term Care Act, this course equips team members, volunteers, and essential caregivers with knowledge and skills relating to raising concerns in situations of resident abuse.

Throughout this course, learners will explore their obligation to report certain specific matters immediately as they care for residents from a position of power and trust. By taking this course, team members will learn the importance of reporting and raising concerns in situations of abuse, neglect, or wrong doing to ensure the safety of residents. Team members will also learn what whistle-blowing is, when whistle-blowing is required, and what protection the Fixing Long-Term Care Act provides for whistle-blowers. This course is available at no cost!

With this course, learners will explore and respond to real-life situations shared by residents living in long-term care across Ontario.

Take the course today!
