Welcome to P.I.E.C.E.S.!

The foundation for a common vision, a common language, and common approach to the care of older people in the long-term care sector in the Province of Ontario, Canada has been achieved through the development of a comprehensive, system-wide approach to education.

The provincial learning strategy entitled "Putting the P.I.E.C.E.S. Together", was originally designed to enhance the ability of Long-Term Care home staff to meet the care requirements of individuals with increasingly complex physical and cognitive/ mental health needs and associated behavioural issues.

Experiences and evaluations with the P.I.E.C.E.S. education program over the past decade have informed the design of support structures for the ongoing development of the learners and complementary programs for the LTC community, retirement homes, and for acute care and emergency departments.
