ACTION LEARNING TO IMPROVE PERSON CENTRED CARE THROUGH MINDFULNESS

These webinar sessions offer support materials on 5 key topics unique to each home

The weekly group support sessions can accommodate teams of up to ten. A facilitator will oversee the live discussion, exploring the impacts COVID-19 and other lifestyle factors that can result in decreased resilience and compassion fatigue.

Based on 5 sessions over 5 weeks, the forums cover ideas, strategies, and support mechanisms for how to achieve a meaningful connection.

The group sessions are split into two parts:

1. Connections Matter

2. A Practical Approach
