Provincial Common Orientation to Caring for Older Adults – Program Outline

The Provincial Common Orientation to the Care of Older Adults (Provincial Common Orientation) is a tiered approach to learning that enables health and social care providers interested in the care of older adults living with frailty to engage in relevant and progressive professional development. The Provincial Common Orientation is intended to support a holistic approach to geriatric care through learning activities that integrate the complex physical, cognitive, social and mental health concerns frequently experienced among older adults.
Health and social care professionals new to geriatrics build initial knowledge through foundational concepts appropriate for interprofessional teams (Tier 1: Foundations in Geriatrics for Interprofessional Teams). Learners then expand this foundational knowledge and develop additional skill by engaging in enhanced learning activities (Tier 2: Enhanced Knowledge and Skill Development in the Care of Older Adults).
