Collaborative Learning Centre
Shannex and Dalhousie University’s Department of Family Medicine and Faculty of Health Professions established a formal partnership to create the Collaborative Learning Center (CLC) at Maplestone – the first academic nursing home in Atlantic Canada.
Clients at Maplestone benefit from having students of various health-related professions in the facility. It is a place where health care professionals can learn about and support the unique needs of those living in long-term care.
This partnership is changing attitudes toward long-term care and care of the frail and elderly. Most importantly, it has improved care planning for clients and it allows students and health practitioners to develop a collaborative, full-team approach to care.
