Preventing, Recognizing, and Reporting Abuse and Neglect in Long-Term Care
The Orientation eLearning courses, created by the Ontario CLRI at the RIA, provide education for new team members during orientation, and for existing team members during their annual training. These scenario-based learning courses ensure that learners have the knowledge and skills needed to assist the people they support and are in line with Ministry of Long-Term Care guidelines. They were developed using evidence-based best practices and adult education principles, in collaboration with subject matter experts and LTC leaders.
Preventing, Recognizing, and Reporting Abuse and Neglect in Long-Term Care is a self-paced Orientation course on abuse prevention that will equip or refresh long-term care team members on the knowledge and skills required to support residents. 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. By taking this course, team members will learn the importance of following protocol in situations of abuse or neglect to ensure the safety of residents.

Word Swap Poster
This one-page Word Swap Poster invites readers to consider swapping out common words in favour of person-centred language(PCL)-friendly words in everyday conversations.
The poster is available in French and English and contains a total of 15 examples under four categories: people, places, actions, and items.
We hope these examples can inspire you to reflect on the power of words when supporting people with, or at risk, of responsive behaviours/personal expressions. You can also explore more PCL resources to support your LTC homes’ inclusion journey.
