Enabling a Healthy Workforce to Provide Person-Centered Care
Through Reimagining LTC: Enabling a Healthy Workforce to Provide Person-Centred Care, Healthcare Excellence Canada is supporting more than 235 long-term care homes in all 10 provinces to implement projects focused on fostering a healthy work environment to deliver safer, higher quality person-centred care.
Reimagining LTC Webinar Series
The Reimagining LTC webinar series explores topics related to people in the workforce and person-centred care, with the aim of fostering a more resilient long-term care sector. Hour-long webinars are hosted monthly and feature speakers with expertise in topics related to long-term care.
This new series builds on HEC’s previous webinar series, Next Steps in COVID-19 Response in Long-Term Care.
LTC Quality Improvement
HEC supported a community of 286 long-term care homes to implement quality improvement projects related to person-centred care and support for the workforce. Participating homes received funding, coaching and quality improvement resources to implement evidence-informed interventions in their setting.
LTC+: Acting on Pandemic Learning Together
From 2020 to 2022, this program brought together more than 1,500 homes caring for older adults in congregate settings to navigate challenges and opportunities related to the COVID-19 pandemic and enhance their organization’s skills and resilience. Teams received funding and coaching, and participated in virtual learning and peer support opportunities.
This program focused on creating ways for teams to learn from and with each other in six key areas:
- people in the workforce
- pandemic response and surge capacity
- planning for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 care
- presence of family
LTC+ was delivered by HEC with support from Health Quality BC (previously the BC Patient Safety and Quality Council), Shared Health (previously Manitoba Institute for Patient Safety), New Brunswick Association of Nursing Homes and CADTH, with additional funding support from the CMA Foundation.
