Attention staff and students from Practical Nursing and health-related programs: Family Councils Forums (formerly St. Joseph’s Villa Family Council Forum) will a host one-day forum on Oct. 21: Pathways for Resident Emergency Care.
This forum will explore the issues and concerns when a resident of a long-term care facility has to be transported to hospital in an emergency situation. It forum will look particularly at the communications necessary for the resident to have appropriate treatment. This can be very problematic when the resident cannot speak for themselves or is not competent to express their healthcare needs.
The committee is represented by Family Council members of LTC homes across the LHIN 4 Region and FCF will host the fifth annual Fall Forum this year at Linhaven Home Auditorium, 403 Ontario St., St. Catharines.
