“Quality of care is now getting the attention it deserves.” – Dr. Sienna Caspar
It’s Seniors’ Week! Did you know the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta supports high-quality research vital to the care of seniors?
The CLPNA’s partner, Dr. Sienna Caspar of the University of Lethbridge, was recently interviewed on CTV News about a culture-for-change model developed to support person-centered care being tested in seniors care facilities across Alberta.
The model will soon be available in a web-based platform and made available, at little or no cost, to all residential care providers.
Dr. Caspar’s work is partially supported through a $25,000 grant from the CLPNA.
