The Preceptor Resource and Education Program in Long-Term Care (PREP LTC) provides long-term care (LTC) homes funding to help increase the quality of and capacity for clinical student placements in Ontario.

In Year 4 of the program, LTC homes will again be eligible to enroll and register to receive additional funding to support the coordination of clinical placements. This option ensures all homes have the opportunity to access the funds.

By enrolling in the PREP LTC initiative, LTC homes will have access to:

  • Support from Regional Engagement Liaisons.
  • Funding to backfill preceptor time or as honoraria for preceptors.
  • Funding to start up or expand a student placement coordinator role.
  • Funding for preceptor education.
  • Assessment of homes needs and barriers.
  • Connections with post-secondary schools.
  • Tools, resources and templates.

PREP LTC helps address the staffing needs of the LTC sector by providing funding, education and resources to Ontario LTC homes to build capacity for clinical student placements. The project also equips preceptors in LTC to support positive and successful student placements.
