The RNAO Long-Term Care Best Practices Program is offering an informative webinar intended for Long-Term Care home leaders and staff on a video created with Woodingford Lodge on prevention of abuse and neglect of older adults.

Woodingford Lodge, together with the RNAO LTC Best Practices Program, created a video depicting interaction of a management team attending a morning meeting.  It is subsequent to the five videos developed by Parkview Manor Health Care Centre, illustrating interactions between staff and residents in long-term care. 

Presentation provides:

  • an introduction and purpose of the video
  • an overview of the facilitator’s guide
  • accessible links of the video and facilitator’s guide

This webinar is intended for long-term care leaders and staff to open up dialogue with staff members on what is considered abuse and neglect, what the policies and laws are on this matter, and procedures to follow.

Session Objectives:

  • Utilize the facilitator’s guide to support education of staff
  • Clarify expectations of reporting suspected abuse and neglect
  • Review whistle-blower protection
  • Moral, ethical, professional and legal responsibilities for reporting suspected abuse and neglect
