Mandatory Reporting and Whistle-blowing eLearning Course

Everyone working, volunteering, or visiting long-term care homes plays a significant role in ensuring residents feel at home, are treated with kindness and respect, and receive the necessary support and services for their health and well-being. In the Mandatory Reporting and Whistle-blowing eLearning course, learners will explore and respond to real-life situations shared by residents living in long-term care across Ontario. By taking this five-minute course, team members will learn the importance of reporting and raising concerns in situations of abuse, neglect or wrong doing to ensure the safety of residents. Team members will also learn what whistle-blowing is, when whistle-blowing is required, and what protection the Fixing Long-term Care Act provides for whistle-blowers.

The Orientation eLearning Series, developed by the Ontario CLRI at the RIA, provides education for new LTC team members during their orientation, and for existing team members during their annual training. These scenario-based and interactive eLearning courses ensure that learners have the knowledge and skills needed to assist the people they support. They were developed using evidence-based best practices and adult education principles, in collaboration with subject matter experts and LTC leaders.

This interactive eLearning course aligns with the Fixing Long-Term Care Act, and is available at no cost!
