The University of Guelph has announced that it is creating a new micro-credential program to train personal support workers to work in long-term care facilities. UoGuelph, St Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph, and the Canadian PSW Network will partner on the development of the program, which will include five 25-hour micro-credentials that students can complete online and at their own pace. The program will cover a variety of skills, such as observation and critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration, communication, and flexible thinking. Students will receive a certificate after completing all five micro-credentials. The program is designed to address work shortages in long-term care.
