One Day is a new education session in building a person-centred culture in senior living settings. This day-long, virtual training will equip long-term care team members to foster a more person-centred approach in their care provision and among their teams.
Why One Day?
- The course is unique because it was co-developed with people living and working in senior living settings, and subject matter experts in education, facilitation and culture change.
- The course is action-focused: Learners will identify four ways to immediately implement a person-centred approach to care in their work, and two ways to share this knowledge with their team. Learners will be provided with a hard copy or a digital copy of One Day Learner’s Action Plan for use during the course and to keep as a tool for success.
