Pier 2 & 3
Mealtimes are important for the quality of life and health of residents living in long term care (LTC) homes. This workshop will update delegates on the key findings from a national research study called Making the Most of the Mealtimes (M3), which was conducted in 32 LTC homes across Canada. The CHOI+ Program, an educational intervention developed to improve the dining experience of residents, will be introduced. Delegates will gain an understanding of the 6 CHOICE+ principles and the key ingredients to changing dining practices in LTC. Two self-assessment tools developed as part of the CHOICE+ Program will be shared and delegates will have the opportunity to practice using these tools during the workshop.
