Reminder – Strategic Planning Town Halls at Lyndhurst and Toronto General this week
We kicked off our Strategic Planning Town Halls last week at Toronto Western. It was a great session, with thoughtful questions and comments from staff; thanks to everyone who came out. This week I will be at Toronto Rehab's Lyndhurst Centre on Wednesday, March 22nd and Toronto General on Friday, March 24th. I'm really looking forward to sharing our vision for this Strategic Planning process and chatting with you about our journey of renewal so far. I've included the full Town Hall schedule below:
Proud to wear Purple
Each day in Canada 42 people are diagnosed with epilepsy. There's a lot of misunderstanding in the community about this neurological condition which causes abnormal electrical activity in the brain and can lead to unpredictable seizures as well as having physical, emotional and social consequences for patients. At UHN we're dedicated to improving the quality of life of our patients by offering the best care possible while we also search for new treatment alternatives. That's why we wholeheartedly support events such as Purple Day this Thursday, March 23rd. This annual event helps raise awareness, promote understanding and reduce the stigma about epilepsy worldwide.
We can all show support for our patients and staff this Thursday by wearing something purple to work and sharing photos of our fashion choices on social media using #PurpleDay. Together we can help improve the patient experience at UHN while simultaneously recognizing the outstanding contributions of all the team members in the epilepsy program at Toronto Western.
Crisis Intervention Training
At UHN we believe that no employee should be harmed at work from acts of violence, which is why we launched a new Crisis Intervention Training earlier this year as part of Caring Safely. This program incorporates an overview of core prevention principles including risk, relationship, behavior, and aggression management. It also includes physical intervention concepts and techniques, scenarios, and situational based learning. All staff that provide services in high- and moderate-risk areas such as emergency departments, mental health, critical care, acquired brain injury, multi-organ transplant and general internal medicine programs, are required to participate in the training. Staff who have participated in this training so far found the scenario-based exercises to be extremely valuable. If you have not already registered, please contact your manager or Occupational Health and Safety for additional information.
