ICCER held Networking Events in Edmonton on June 4 and Calgary on June 10 on “Giving Voice to Older Adults through Co-Created Films: Learning how Designed Things Can Support the Aging Process” by Dr. Megan Strickfaden.
ICCER member organizations came together to discuss CCHSS 16.0, Restraint Management and Secure Spaces, as it continues to cause concern and confusion among care providers. Staff in Calgary (June 11) and Edmonton (June 12) shared resources and ideas on how they can meet the Standard while maintaining best practice and person-centred care for residents. Resources can be found on the Members-only Area of the website.
ICCER held our first Innovation Day on April 3rd. It was a chance for ICCER member organizations to ‘show off and share’ with each other. We had close to 100 people at the event held at CapitalCare Dickinsfield. Check out the program.
Presentations and more photos from the day can be found in the members-only pages.
We’d like to thank Cardinal Health, Alberta Seniors Communities & Housing Association (ASCHA) and Health Arts Society of Alberta (HASA) for joining us. While they are not ICCER organizational members, they shared some great ideas with our members.
On March 19th ICCER's Program Coordinator, Emily Dymchuk, as well as staff from Bethany Airdrie, Lifestyle Options, St. Michael's Long-Term Care Centre and Wing Kei attended the Embedding a Palliative Approach to Care (EPAC) Workshop in Ottawa. The workshop was an opportunity for teams across Canada to meet one another and share the work they have done, and the successes and challenges of the project so far. The team left Ottawa feeling inspired and re-energized to continue with culture change at their sites!
