Rotary Manor staff take part in a Clinical Skills Day.

A Clinical Skills Day for the staff of Rotary Manor, the long-term care facility in Dawson Creek, was held in May. The Northern Health long-term care educators, registered dietitians, dental hygienists, and occupational therapy team worked collaboratively to create educational information on many topics to make this an informative, interesting, and educational event for all staff.

Thank you to the long-term care educators from each health service delivery area who worked on the information to make this such a successful day. Additionally, thank you to the disciplines such as the dental hygienists, occupational therapy team, and the registered dietitians who attended to make this a successful, fun, and engaging event for staff!
