LTC+ Huddles

As part of the LTC+ Acting on Pandemic Learning Together program, long-term care and retirement home teams are invited to attend virtual huddles to discuss COVID-19 issues related to safe and effective care.

These 30-minute huddles are led by subject matter experts and organizations sharing how they have tackled pandemic related challenges. Huddles create space and time for teams to openly share their experiences in a safe, encouraging learning environment.

Our aim is for teams to hear about practical tools or learning they can apply immediately in their own home. The huddles involve a group discussion to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and help teams make new connections from different homes across the country.

Huddle recordings and summaries are shared with the registered LTC+ teams. If you’re a registered team and can’t find these recordings and summaries, please reach out to the HEC team.

Upcoming Huddles

The following dates are confirmed, and all huddles are held on a Thursday from 2:30pm – 3:00pm (ET). Information on themes and presenters for each huddle will be added as it is available.

If LTC+ teams are interested in leading a huddle, please get in touch.

This meeting is being canceled in recognition of The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. We are taking this time to recognize and reflect on the impacts of residential schools as part of our learning journey and commitment towards Truth and Reconciliation. We also encourage others to reflect on how to advance their own journey towards Truth and Reconciliation.

Essential Together: Update and Policy Guidelines for Essential Care Partners, with Jessie Checkley and Carol Fancott

This huddle will provide an overview of updated policy guidance and evidence for implementing family presence policies in health and care settings, including during the pandemic. During 2020, policy guidance regarding family presence policies was co-developed with range of people with expertise and COVID-19 related experience, including providers, administrators, patients, families and caregivers. Using the latest evidence about the impact of restrictive policies on patient outcomes, this policy guidance has been updated to reflect the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
