Tools to Boost Vaccine Confidence in LTC Teams

Getting vaccinated is critical to protecting yourself, your loved ones and our most vulnerable Ontarians from COVID-19. Each person vaccinated brings us one step closer to eliminating COVID-19 from our long-term care homes and our communities.

That’s why we’re working to build vaccine confidence — and where you come in. People are more likely to listen to someone they know and trust. You can help boost vaccination rates by engaging with your colleagues and community on vaccine safety.

Setting SMART Goals

Setting too many goals could mean that your goals are scoped too low and are focused on tasks instead of results. This goal-setting method will help long-term care homes to set realistic goals for students and help measure performance.

When creating your goals, make sure that they are ‘SMART’ – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.

Student Orientation Package

A student placement in long-term care (LTC) is a great opportunity to learn and practice new skills, explore career opportunities, and build meaningful relationships.

While completing a placement at an LTC home, students contribute to the quality of life and well-being of residents. They are a valuable member of the team. This Student Orientation Package can be used by LTC homes to introduce students to information and resources to help prepare them for the experience.
