Our Impact

A Look at 2017

In 2017-2018, the Ontario CLRI strengthened the LTC sector by engaging 62% of the 627 LTC homes, and thus impacted more than 53,000 residents across the province.

We ensured workforce excellence through training, programs and practice change, often in partnership with LTC homes, colleges, universities and other stakeholders. In total, 127,380 hours of training were offered to more than 6,500 staff and students.

We improved and modernized care by conducting and supporting research on innovative approaches to enhance quality in LTC. Nineteen research and innovation grants were submitted, supported and/or implemented, in topics such as fall detection apps and medication management.

We sparked change by sharing ideas, innovations and evidence to empower LTC homes and stakeholders to implement new practices. We held 137 knowledge mobilization activities that empowered 7,650 stakeholders to help front-line care providers in the implementation and delivery of high quality practice change.

We strengthened equity, diversity and access to resources by inviting those who live and work in LTC to help inform the Ontario CLRI’s priorities. A 13-member Provincial Advisory Committee was formed with representation from LTC homes, residents, family members, associations and entry-to-practice educators, along with two Ontario CLRI advisory committees that identify and develop resources for diversity (language, gender, age, ability, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation) and indigenous culture in LTC.
