Successful clinical student placements help recruit and retain future team members
while strengthening the people working in LTC and the sector.
Providing a good experience for future team members is essential. The relationship between a preceptor and student is very important and can be a rewarding career experience for both parties. PREP LTC provides students and preceptors with knowledge, skills, values and attitudes across a wide variety of topics related to clinical student placement and the LTC setting.
Backfill pay to LTC homes for the PREP LTC eLearning Course
PREP LTC will cover the backfill costs of clinical preceptors. Backfill payments are for completing all eight modules of the PREP LTC course through the eLearning Hub. Backfill pay is $30 per hour x 7 hours = $210 per clinical preceptor.
The PREP LTC eLearning course was developed by the Ontario CLRI at Baycrest and is built on the success of the ministry-funded Preceptor Education Program (PEP) in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Western Ontario and with Fanshawe College School of Nursing.
