Interprofessional Internship in Innovation & Aging in Long-Term Care

Celebrating 10 years of student partnerships and geriatric learning excellence!

Join us in our newly redesigned virtual hybrid Interprofessional Internship! Engage with your peers in facilitated sessions, project work and an online game! All Ontario healthcare professions students are welcome to apply for this paid internship.

Interns have the opportunity to:

  • Gain exposure to the long-term care sector;
  • Enhance knowledge, skills, and attitudes in aging and leading clinical gerontological practice;
  • Apply clinical knowledge and skills in simulated care scenarios;
  • Rehearse interprofessional geriatric practice competencies;
  • Analyze current practice challenges;
  • Develop and apply design-thinking skills in the creation of a sustainable, practice innovation;
  • Exercise professionalism and goal orientation.

 

These objectives are supported through facilitated discussions with Baycrest leaders and experiential partners; collaborative, capstone innovation project; reflective learning exercises; hybrid-simulation care scenarios; and game-based learning.

Open to students and recent graduates of post-secondary healthcare profession programs, including: nursing, practical nursing, medicine, pharmacy, social work, psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, kinesiology, food and nutrition, therapeutic recreation, optometry, dentistry, speech language pathology, audiology, health sciences, and health studies. This exciting opportunity enables interns to explore a future in older adult health care, network with future and current healthcare providers, and shape their current practice.

“This internship is an amazing opportunity for students to gain professional skills and knowledge that is applicable to any setting in health care. I hope to use these skills to be a health advocate for the geriatric population in my future career!” – 2022 Internship alumnus

Indigenous Land Acknowledgement Guiding Framework

Land acknowledgements are an important piece of reconciliation in the context of providing care to Indigenous people and our broader work towards cultural safety.

This Indigenous Land Acknowledgement Guiding Framework developed by Behavioural Supports Ontario can support the incorporation of land acknowledgements into meetings and events. It also includes particular considerations for individuals and organizations (in particular considerations around dementia, older adults and mental health), resources for further learning and other ways to promote reconciliation.

Infection Prevention and Control in Long-Term Care

This page includes tools and resources to equip those working and volunteering in long-term care (LTC) with the skills and knowledge they need to protect themselves, their colleagues, residents, family members, and community members.

The Ontario CLRI at the RIA has developed infection and prevention control (IPAC) eLearning courses for team members and essential care partners. These courses combine education on IPAC core concepts with application to LTC-specific situations and tasks.
