Working with Seniors: A Primer
12 hours – Participants are able to enroll at any time throughout the year and are asked to complete the program of study within 12 weeks.
This specialty basic level course was developed in partnership with Baycrest Health Sciences to fill an important gap in the education of health care professionals and others providing support to seniors. The overall goal of this program is to enable new health professionals, caregivers and others to be comfortable and confident in working with geriatric clients who will soon make up over 50 % of the patients we serve.
Each module contains multiple choice questions that will assess comprehension of the course material as you progress through the modules. A minimum grade of 80% on the questions contained in each module is required for you to successfully complete the program.
Once you have completed all online units, you must complete and submit a case study that will require you to apply your learning from the online units. Submissions will be graded by the course tutor using a pass/fail system.
You will receive a final certificate once you have completed all program components.
Health care professionals, caregivers and anyone who is providing support to seniors.
For an additional fee, Michener will offer a full day simulation workshop designed to integrate the online learning content and give participants an opportunity to practice skills with seniors (simulated patients).
