The reason LTCAM hosts these provincial conferences annually is to inspire, educate, enlighten and nurture long term and continuing care staff and caregiving individuals. We want to offer new and innovative approaches to your work and personal lives and to enhance your feeling of satisfaction of having not only performed your job well, but of having brought some joy to someone that day! 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

Each presentation throughout the day focused on the topic of this year's theme "Climate Change in Long Term Care Embracing Diversity". Opening Keynote Speaker, Dr. Brock Wright, BSc., MD, FRCPC, MBA spoke about Shared Health. Throughout the day, delegates were treated to extremely relevant topics from many speakers’ presentations; among them were MAID (Medical Assistance in Dying, Transforming Senior Care through Sensor Technology, Take Back the Night, and others including a panel on Respecting Diversity: Exploring Cultural, Spiritual and Religious Aspects of Care. The closing Keynote speaker made possible by our Keynote Closing Partner, Complete Purchasing, was Dr. Brian Goldman, with the topic, “Empathy and Senior-Centred Health Care. Our speakers continue to be the crucial reason that our conference draws growing attendance numbers each year.

"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.

2017 Post Event Story 

The Long Term & Continuing Care Association's (LTCAM) 14th Annual Provincial Conference & Exhibition "Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow" was held Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at the Victoria Inn, in Winnipeg, MB. Following last year's event theme of "Let's Talk.", this year's theme throughout the day was show us how to connect with those we care for by going back to their yesterday; because for many, their yesterday is very clear and real. We also had the opportunity to learn where we are today and what changes can be made so that tomorrow will bring a brighter future for us and the elders we serve (for the event program, speaker profiles & presentations, scroll down). Attendees were health care professionals and members of the community joining together from both across Manitoba, as well as surrounding provinces. These attendees included rural and urban centre health professionals, CEOs, managers, and support workers from long term and continuing care residences. Also welcome to attend were informal caregivers looking to access information to assist in their caregiving responsibilities. The exhibitor hall was SOLD OUT and packed with 93 companies showcasing their innovative products and services. While exploring the exhibitor's hall, both the conference attendees and the exhibitors got better acquainted, networked and formed new working relationships. The event saw a grand total of 550 people, made up of dedicated volunteers, eager delegates, speakers, guests, exhibitors, members, and staff.

"The conference was great this year! Loved the music to end the day!" 
- Conference Delegate

The reason LTCAM hosts these provincial conferences annually is to always inspire, educate, enlighten and nurture long term and continuing care staff and caregiving individuals. We want to offer new and different approaches to your work and personal lives, to enhance your feeling of satisfaction of having not only performed your job well, but of having brought some joy to someone that day!

This also supports LTCAM's primary objective; to advocate on behalf of seniors in Manitoba and the staff who serve them.

Each presentation throughout the day touched on the topic of this year's theme. Amongst the 10 presentations, topics ranged from workplace safety, integration of internationally educated nurses and measuring quality improvement to several sessions focusing on the power of music and validation therapy. Our speakers continue to be the crucial reason that our conference draws growing attendance numbers each year.

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.

"This was my first time attending the conference and I feel I walked away with new tools to 
assist my residents. The exhibitors were great and I was able to liaise with many vendors which was beneficial. 
Today made me feel great to work in long term care!"
