“The face of seniors care in Alberta is changing,” states Jo-Anne Macdonald-Watson, Council President, in the welcome to the CLPNA’s second Think Tank event. “The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta believes we all need to be looking forward and working together to create a high quality, responsive health system that meets the challenges of the next 15 or more years.”

The Think Tank features thought-leaders from Europe, Canada, and Alberta. These innovators in the field of seniors care and dementia will share their insights and what it means for LPNs, partners and stakeholders in health care.

Nearly 200 invited health care leaders, including professional colleges, educators, employers, government and Licensed Practical Nurses will participate.

The event is a result of the CLPNA’s commitment to ensuring the LPN profession is equipped with the skills of tomorrow.

Licensed Practical Nurses are an integral part of caring for seniors and addressing the challenges of caring for increasing numbers of Albertans with dementia.
