The following video was produced by the SK LTC Network in partnership with SPA-LTC, 2021. The SK LTC Network is a group of family members, researchers, clinicians, and trainees that contribute evidence- and experience- informed strategies to support long-term care stakeholders.
Strengthening a Palliative Approach in Long-Term Care (https://spaltc.ca) is an approach that emphasizes quality of life for people with life-limiting illnesses living in long-term care. This approach emphasizes strong resident, family, and staff communication about the needs of the whole person.
SK LTC Network and SPA-LTC worked in partnership to produce this video as a reminder of the significance of family relationships to health and wellbeing. We share the belief that fostering strong resident, family, staff, and decision-maker relationships is integral to the pandemic response and recovery process. Click here to see the video.
