Celebrate SafeCare BC’s fifth anniversary, by participating in our Anniversary Speaker Series
featuring five education sessions of varying topics in different parts of the province.

Presenter: Jennifer Nilsson
November 6 – 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Eden Gardens (Nanaimo)

Incorporating person-centred care into the lives of both residents and employees working in the long-term care environment has unique challenges. Jennifer Nilsson will de-mystify person-centred care and help you explore ways in which this is currently being practiced and delve into some strategies that may further support this approach.

Three recommendations, identified through Jennifer’s research conducted with staff and leaders in long-term care, will be introduced to support person-centred care.

  • Promote a flexible environment that fosters and creates an opportunity for person-centred care approaches.
  • Equip leaders to facilitate person-centred care interactions in their workplace.
  • Articulate person-centred behaviours and competencies in policy documentation.

This interactive session is designed for both front-line workers and health care leaders.

Jennifer Nilsson is inspired by the older adult population. She has been fortunate to work with them for the past 15 years, as a recreation therapist and as a manager in long-term care. Currently, her work involves employee education and quality improvement for eight care homes in BC. She has a Master’s in Health Care Leadership, from Royal Roads University.
