Communication at End-of-Life eLearning Series
This eLearning series is designed to refresh or develop team members’ communication skills to provide quality palliative care and end-of-life care in long-term care (LTC) homes. The three courses in the series include interactive case scenarios that reflect the unique setting and context of care delivery in LTC homes.
Three self-paced courses around 20 minutes in length each.
- Communicating about Hospice Palliative Care
- Coping with Grief
- Building Relationships
This series serves as an introduction to the more comprehensive All-In Palliative Care: The Team Approach to LTC training program. It teaches all interprofessional team members how to recognize palliative care myths, recognize and accommodate the needs of those in mourning, and practice their end-of-life communication skills.

COVID Care Learning
The rapid rise and severity of COVID-19 cases in long-term care (LTC) has led to the urgent redeployment of health professionals to LTC environments. The Ontario COVID-19 Education Task Force (powered by Michener Institute of Education at UHN), in partnership with the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) and the Baycrest Centre for Education, developed an LTC section on covidcarelearning.ca, an online learning management system to support upskilling for health-care workers being redeployed for COVID-19 care.
Please share this resource with incoming team members who are new to the LTC environment. These materials facilitate redeployment to a team-based model of care quickly and safely in LTC homes, and support team members to bridge their knowledge from current practice to the requirements to care for COVID-19 and other residents.
