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.
The PREP LTC preceptor eLearning Course is a self-directed online learning solution that consists of eight interactive eLearning modules. Each module takes about 40 – 90 minutes to complete totalling seven hours of learning. The modules include downloadable resources, learning exercises and interviews with experts, which help LTC homes build positive placement experiences with PSW and nursing students as well as IENs. The course begins with the LTC module.
Backfill pay to LTC homes for the PREP LTC course
PREP LTC will cover the backfill costs of team members acting in preceptor roles. 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 team member.
LTC homes that enroll in PREP LTC will receive backfill funding when a team member from that home completes the free course. To qualify for backfill, LTC homes need to enroll in PREP LTC by visiting clri-prepltc.ca. To learn more about and enroll in the free course, click on the button below.
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.
