Educational Resources for Teaching Personal Support Workers and Others Working in Long-Term Care

The Communication at End-of-Life Education Fund for Long-Term Care (LTC) has developed a Facilitators Guide and four PowerPoint modules aimed at helping LTC personal support workers to better communicate with residents and families.


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 LTC about communication at end-of-life through train-the-trainer workshops and PSW education. A variety of resources have been created to support this, including the below linked Facilitators Guide and PowerPoint Modules. Learn more about the Communication at End-of-Life Education Fund for LTC.
