A range of leadership and ethical issues will be explored at this two-day program, from facility preparedness to patient care, to address the following important questions::

  • How has the pandemic forced PALTC practitioners to reconsider their traditional approaches?
  • How do practitioners translate the lessons learned during this crisis into meaningful action and change?
