COVID Care Learning
The rapid rise and severity of COVID-19 cases in long-term care (LTC) has led to the urgent redeployment of health professionals to LTC environments.
The Ontario COVID-19 Education Task Force (powered by Michener Institute of Education at UHN), in partnership with the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) and the Baycrest Centre for Education, developed an LTC section on covidcarelearning.ca, an online learning management system to support upskilling for health-care workers being redeployed for COVID-19 care.

Please share this resource with incoming team members who are new to the LTC environment. These materials facilitate redeployment to a team-based model of care quickly and safely in LTC homes, and support team members to bridge their knowledge from current practice to the requirements to care for COVID-19 and other residents.

The educational resources for the LTC section of covidcarelearning.ca were developed by a highly skilled and collaborative team of educational experts, clinicians, and academics. Multiple public-facing resources from organizations were used to create this resource, such as those from Baycrest, Bruyère, George Brown College, the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging, and Surge Learning.
