LTC+: Acting on Pandemic Learning Together
LTC+: Acting on Pandemic Learning Together supports teams delivering healthcare for older adults in congregate settings – staff, managers, policy makers, family and caregiver partners and others who are all working hard to manage tough situations now, while also trying to look and plan ahead.
The program is designed to be flexible, supporting homes to quickly implement changes through a menu of virtual offerings: virtual webinar learning series, national LTC+ huddles, coaching and seed funding.
Teams need to register to join via our online portal to get access to huddles and also complete a self-assessment to get access to coaching and possible seed funding.
Coaching can help support teams in a variety of ways such as prioritizing their improvement work, change management expertise, addressing the barriers and discovering the facilitators for their improvement work, and how to make sustainable improvements.
Teams that register to join LTC+ by November 6th are eligible to receive up to three one-on-one sessions with a dedicated coach. Our coaches have a range of skills and expertise and will be matched with teams, depending on the team's focus areas of improvement identified in the Self-Assessment.
Seed funding for teams will be provided in a Phased Approach as available throughout the duration of the program.
In Phase II (September 30th to November 6th), seed funding of up to $10,000 is available for teams.
Seed funding and coaching will be awarded based on the outcome of a merit review process which includes assessment against the following eligibility criteria:
- Completed self-assessment with at least one identified area for improvement
- Completion of the self-assessment in partnership with a resident/family member or care partner, or clear plan to engage a resident/family partner or care partner in the improvement work
- Leadership support for the implementation of a promising practice
Subsequent phases of seed funding will be made available throughout the program.
