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.
About the Toolkit
The Palliative Care Toolkit for Indigenous Communities was created by Cancer Care Ontario in collaboration with First Nations, Métis and Inuit families and communities. It includes:
- First Nations, Inuit and Métis definitions of palliative care
- Personal stories and other resources to help First Nations, Inuit and Métis families and communities develop capacity in palliative care, and cope with grief and loss
- Information to support decision-making and planning for Indigenous people living with advanced cancer
- Information to help care partners care for community members living with advanced cancer
This program has been identified as a resource that supports Indigenous culture in long-term care by the Ontario Caring Advisory Circle.
