Think Tank summary report and presentations released

Think Tank 2014“What do I want when I’m old or have dementia?”

That was the challenge presented to 200 participants at the annual Think Tank hosted by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) on October 23, 2014.

Now the answer, presented by thought-leaders from Europe, Canada, and Alberta, can be read in the Think Tank Report, “Planning for the Future of Seniors’ and Dementia Care”.

Additionally, all the presentations are now available for download. These may be used as part of annual learning as required by the Continuing Competency Program.

The CLPNA is using the Think Tank to support culture change within the profession and better meet the needs of LPNs as they work to provide compassionate and effective care.
