Calling all formal and informal LTC educators!

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to progress in LTC, the amount of information and tools have increased as well. Learn about the new ways of providing care during COVID-19 so that you can better support home staff within your capacity as an educator.

The goals of this webinar are to increase the awareness around the new ways of providing care to older adults during COVID-19; identify evidence-informed resources to support this new type of care; and consider how you can use these resources in your LTC homes to support both current and new members of your team.
