Orientation eLearning, Abuse Prevention in Long-Term Care”The Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA) has released a new Orientation course on abuse prevention in long-term care: Preventing, Recognizing, and Reporting Abuse and Neglect in Long-Term Care. This course is available at no cost to support new and existing team members in fulfilling Ministry of LTC’s training requirements.

Understanding how to prevent abuse and neglect is a critical skill for LTC team members as they care for residents from a position of power and trust. Equipping team members with this skill and preparing them to recognize and report abuse allows Ontario LTC homes to better protect their residents and uphold their policies. By taking this course, team members will learn, at their own pace, the importance of following protocol in situations of abuse or neglect to ensure the safety of residents.

Welcome to Our Summer CO-OP Students

This summer, the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) at Bruyère welcomes seven University of Ottawa co-op students that will be joining our team virtually or in-person.

The students come from a wide range of fields, including biochemistry, communication, political science, and more. Their academic backgrounds and diverse strengths will support their contributions to Ontario CLRI portfolios such as sustaining palliative care, equity, diversity and inclusion in long-term care (LTC), clinical nursing leadership, recreational therapy, and central communications.

As part of our commitment to educating the current and future LTC workforce, the Ontario CLRI is proud to provide developmental training and experiences for these students.

“Our team is excited to offer a supportive workspace of growth and learning for co-op students this summer. We are investing in an enhanced student development so that the students have an optimal experience and may increase their interest in a career supporting seniors.”
— Zsófia Orosz, MA, MHA, Director, Ontario CLRI at Bruyère

During the first two weeks of their placement, the students participated in an engaging orientation process to facilitate team-building, self-reflection, and an understanding of Ontario CLRI initiatives.

The students will be working with their respective teams at Ontario CLRI at Bruyère or the central Ontario CLRI team until they resume their studies in September.
