Since 2012, the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) have worked to transform learning opportunities to strengthen the long-term care (LTC) workforce.
The Ontario CLRI strengthened the LTC sector in 2018/19 by engaging 72% of the 600+ LTC homes and impacting the care of more than 69,500 residents across the province.
We built up the LTC workforce through education and training, resources, and practice change, often in partnership with LTC homes, colleges, universities and other stakeholders. More than 152,700 hours of training were offered to more than 8,200 team members, clinicians, and students.
We sparked change by sharing ideas, innovations and evidence to help LTC homes and stakeholders to implement new practices. We held 127 knowledge mobilization activities and helped to spread 190 resources that the Program identified, created or developed.
