Reporting the right information, at the right time, in the right way, to a variety of oversight bodies is an important regulatory requirement for long-term care homes and employees. This imperative and the need for a home’s staff to be aware of their specific reporting obligations was underlined by the LTC Homes Public Inquiry. The COVID-19 pandemic has added reporting requirements of its own.

With so much to stay on top of, it is critical that you refresh your knowledge and review the different reporting formats required by the range of agencies involved. You will hear directly from representatives of major reporting organizations with specifics on what is required and expected, including for COVID-19-related and health privacy obligations, new for this year’s workshop. Ensure your home stays compliant and avoids potential consequences due to incorrect or misinformed reporting practices. Bring your questions and leave with answers.

Please share details of this workshop with others in your organization who may benefit from attending.
