For over 10 years, the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (Ontario CLRI) have been working together to enhance the quality of life and care for residents across the province. The Ontario CLRI does this by building capacity through training, education, innovation, and knowledge mobilization with the aim of improving the health and well-being of people who live and work in long-term care (LTC). The Ontario CLRI Program leverages the expertise and activities of its host centres, Baycrest Academy for Research and Education, Bruyère Research Institute, and the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging to develop and deliver tailored solutions to sector-driven priorities.
In 2022-23, the Ontario CLRI continued to make significant inroads in addressing workforce training and education needs as well as identifying and rapidly responding to emerging challenges in the LTC sector.
As a provincial resource, we focused on:
- Quality & Innovation: Fostering an environment where LTC homes are the true leaders in making change.
- Training & Workforce Development: Supporting team members in implementing evidence-informed best practices in care.
- Person-Centred Approaches to Care: Empowering residents to live fully and participate in their communities.
