Supporting Education for End-of-Life Care in Long-Term Care Across Ontario
Supported by funding from the Government of Ontario, the Ontario Centre for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care at Bruyère collaborated with Algonquin College to create resources aimed at teaching personal support workers working in long-term care (LTC) about communication at end-of-life.
A variety of resources have been created surrounding communication at end-of-life, including Facilitators Guide, PowerPoint Modules, webinar, an article from AdvantAge Ontario’s Action Update, information packages, and an FAQ. See below for links to these items.
Transitioning to end-of-life care can be a difficult time for a resident and their family. Everyone has their own thoughts, feelings, and beliefs around death and loss. Developing communication at end-of-life skills are crucial for LTC staff to foster therapeutic relationships with the residents and their families, increasing levels of comfort with hospice and palliative care philosophy.
Educational resources developed collaboratively by Algonquin College and the Ontario Centre for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care at Bruyère.
Presented by Ruth Richardson, Hospice Palliative Care Nurse Educator at Algonquin College, this webinar recording helps with understanding the hospice palliative care approach to inform communication at end-of-life in LTC.
