About the Think Tank

The Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA) hosted a Think Tank on Moral Distress in Long-Term Care, in Waterloo, Ontario, on September 29, 2023. Participants included researchers, policy makers, care providers, and knowledge mobilization practitioners.

The goals of the Think Tank were to:

  • share and learn about current Canadian perspectives on moral distress and moral injury,
  • understand how this knowledge can be applied to the long-term care sector, and
  • explore opportunities for future research, clinical practice, and collaborative knowledge mobilization.

ECHO Care of the Elderly for LTC: COVID-19

Project ECHO Care of the Elderly is a telehealth, case-based learning program run by Baycrest and North East Specialized Geriatric Centre (NESGC) to enhance the quality of care to LTC residents by improving the knowledge and skills of their primary care providers. This session focuses on building resiliency in LTC team members during the COVID-19 pandemic.

These are unprecedented times that put extra pressure on LTC homes and team members. These recorded sessions will help those working in LTC build resiliency and strengthen their LTC teams.
