2019 Post Event Story

The Long Term & Continuing Care Association's (LTCAM) 16th Annual Provincial Conference & Exhibition "It’s All About YOU!”" was held Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at the Victoria Inn, in Winnipeg, MB. This year throughout the day, engaging speakers provided strategic, practical information and tools to enable you in your work place to more effectively help those entrusted to your care, but also to take care of yourself in the process. It’s all about you and those you serve.

The reason LTCAM hosts these provincial conferences annually is to inspire, educate, enlighten and nurture long term and continuing care staff and caregiving individuals.  If we can achieve this as an outcome, having you leave the conference with some new "tools" that you can't wait to use the very next day with that resident that you just have not been able to connect with, then we have truly inspired you. This also supports LTCAM's primary objective; to advocate on behalf of seniors in Manitoba and the staff who serve them.

 

"Very well done in all aspects!!"
- Conference Delegate

Opening Keynote Speaker, Paula Morand (CEO of Paula Morand Enterprises) set the tone and challenged us all to Dream BIG, Be Bold.  Each speaker that followed, shared amazing topics that not only are relevant in the day to day workplace, but provide practical and encouraging ways of engaging and helping all involved.  Charleen Phelps (R.N. Consultant Teepa Snow and Positive Approach™ to Care) talked about the Living GEMS, ending the day with a topic “Until there’s a Cure, there’s Care.


"Excellent"
Conference Delegate

Each year, we encourage our participants to complete a conference evaluation form. A special thank you to the huge number of those folks who took the time to contribute their comments and suggestions. These forms are carefully reviewed, analyzed, and used to a large extent to shape future conferences. This information not only gives us direction for next year, but encourages us to "strive for improvement" in the years to come.
