P.I.E.C.E.S.™ 16-hour Learning and Development Program
The P.I.E.C.E.S. 16-hour Learning and Development Program reflects a holistic person and care partner-directed model which enhances capacity at the individual, TEAM, organization, and system levels to support the care of the older individual living with complex chronic disorders, including cognitive and/or mental health needs and associated responsive behaviours. Using the P.I.E.C.E.S. model provides a comprehensive yet practical TEAM approach to shared solution finding, early detection of and response to change in the person, enhanced shared care planning and ongoing evaluation and monitoring. The P.I.E.C.E.S. 16-hour program provides a dynamic, highly interactive learner focused experience designed to support the translation of knowledge into day-to-day practice. Delivery of the program emphasizes: enhancing learners' clinical skills and knowledge; practical application of core concepts in the workplace; consolidation of learning including feedback on practical application; and exploring the role of serving as a resource to others on the TEAM to support collaboration using a common language, common vision, and common approach. The P.I.E.C.E.S. 16-hour Learning and Development Program is intended for regulated health professionals or those health professionals who have a clinical responsibility and accountability for assessment and care planning in long-term care homes, retirement homes, community, hospital, or primary care.
