The purpose of this webinar is to share strategies to acknowledge and support diverse identities and needs of individuals who live and work in LTC homes. In order to deliver person-centered care, it is important for long-term care providers to thoughtfully consider the diversity of residents’ perspectives and experiences. Informed by histories of marginalization, being “different” continues to be challenging in modern day. Further, long-term care team members and leaders are faced with systemic pressures (i.e., high workloads, limited resources) while individuals’ needs for expressions of diversity in LTC homes are sometimes overlooked.
With implications for how we provide care and services in long-term care, this webinar offers self-reflection tools to think critically in order to support individuals with diverse social identities.
This webinar is hosted by the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care.
