From March to May 2022, the Ontario CLRI at Bruyère hosted three virtual sessions to provide a flexible, supportive, and interactive space for participants to be introduced to a particular ‘slice’ of the topic of cultural responsiveness, hear about a case example that highlights the content introduced in the session and engage in discussion about integrating learnings around culturally responsive care to the case example.
The Culturally Responsive Palliative Care in LTC – Case-Oriented Learning Session Series is part of our Collaborative Project to Sustain a Palliative Approach to Care in Long-Term Care. Team members that attended the sessions can refresh their learning with the webinar recordings below, and team members that missed the event now have access to this resource to support their continued learning!
We encourage you to view the recorded mini session series before viewing the case-oriented learning sessions.
Mini Session 1: Starting with the Basics
Mini Session 2: Layers and Intersections
Mini Session 3: Practice Makes… Imperfect
The following videos are recordings of the live presentations. The sessions also included an interactive discussion, so we encourage you to reflect and discuss your questions and takeaways with other team members to enhance your learning.
