New series of podcasts disseminates findings from our “Pilot Study of an Innovative Online Dementia Education Intervention for Multi-Disciplinary Post-Secondary Health Care Students in Ontario.”
The AGE team continues to work with Jacky Au Duong, a knowledge mobilization specialist from the Centre for Communicating Knowledge at Ryerson University. Over the course of the summer, we have filmed a series of eight 15-minute podcasts that will summarize the focus, findings and impact of the interprofessional pilot study (noted above) to evaluate a blended classroom approach to GPA program delivery (GPA eLearning followed by Geriatric Skills Day Workshop). Funded for podcasts provided by the Retired Teachers of Ontario Foundation (RTOF).
The AGE Podcast series will be posted on the AGE website and the Retired Teachers of Ontario Foundation (RTOF) website in Fall 2018.
