Did you know that 1 in 4 Canadians are family caregivers?
A family caregiver is broadly defined as any person who takes on a generally unpaid caring role providing emotional, physical, or practical support in response to an illness, disability, or age-related needs. Research has shown that well-supported family caregivers provide better care for their loved ones.
The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta’s upcoming webinar introduces LPNs to the foundational, competency-based Caregiver-Centered Care education on how to support family caregivers. A live Q&A follows with presenters Dr. Jasneet Parmar, Associate Professor, Department of Family Medicine, University of Alberta, and Glenda Tarnowski, Director of Professional Practice, CLPNA.
The webinar will explore:
- Why it is important to support family caregivers.
- The consultations that informed the development of the education.
- Competencies LPNs can apply to support family caregivers.
- Opportunities for LPNs to become caregiver-centered care champions.
This education is also available to CLPNA members in the Caregiver-Centered Care Learning Module through myCLPNA.
