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.
We built up the LTC workforce 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 areas such as fall detection apps and medication management.
We sparked change by sharing ideas, innovations and evidence to help LTC homes and stakeholders to implement new practices. We held 137 knowledge mobilization activities that empowered 7,650 stakeholders.
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.
