What Went Right … What Went Wrong? Seniors Care and COVID-19
We are pleased to feature one of the panel sessions of our #BCCPA2021 virtual annual conference The Three Rs: Reflection, Resilience, and Reinvention. You can view the full agenda here.
Day One of the conference will focus on Reflection and we will explore the firsthand experiences of health care workers, seniors, and other stakeholders during their time through the COVID-19 pandemic. While we will highlight major obstacles that were faced during the pandemic, we will also showcase key lessons learned from British Columbia, Canada, as well as lesson we learned internationally as providers and seniors persisted through this challenging time.
Moderated by BC Care Providers Association and EngAge BC CEO Terry Lake, this panel will focus on what are believed to be the main contributing factors for the large number of COVID-19 outbreaks in seniors’ care. These factors include high levels of community transmission, insufficient personal protective equipment (PPE) and infection prevention and control (IPC) measures, lack of health human resources, the physical design of care homes (including multi-bed rooms), lack of leadership, ownership, and the size of facilities.
Panel will include:
- Dr. Robert Bell, former Ontario Deputy Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Professor of Surgery, University of Toronto
- Jo-Ann Tait, Executive Director, Regional Long-Term Care, Assisted Living and Supported Housing, Vancouver Coastal Health
- Debra Hauptman, CEO, Langley Lodge
When: Monday May 31, 2021
Time: 12:45pm to 1:45pm
