Webinar Series: Next Steps in COVID-19 Response in Long-Term Care and Retirement Homes
As long-term care and retirement homes continue to adapt to COVID-19, collaborative learning is needed now more than ever. The Next Steps in COVID-19 Response webinar series brings people together so they can share with and learn from others facing similar challenges and opportunities in long-term care and retirement homes during the pandemic.
This webinar series focuses on six key areas that can strengthen pandemic response: preparation; prevention; people in the workforce; pandemic response and surge capacity; plan for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 care; and presence of family.
This webinar series complements the LTC+ Acting on Pandemic Learning Together program and is open to anyone who would like to join.
