Team skits on quality enliven the OMNI Leadership Forum

Ellen DeGeneres mock-up gets room dancing

From an Ellen DeGeneres mock-up to a performance inspired by ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, the skits presented at this year’s OMNI Leadership Forum have been both creative and energetic.

The annual OMNI Leadership Forum, underway in Kingston from May 17-19, is focused on quality.

As a lively way to drill down the learning about quality, teams from each of OMNI Health Care’s 18 long-term care homes prepared and presented a skit about an aspect of quality.

The skit inspired by Ellen DeGeneres was especially fun, says Amber Pula, who attended the forum as a videographer on behalf of the OMNIway news service. “They got people up dancing and they really engaged the crowd.” Asked about the colour she would imagine the energy around that skit to be, Pula says yellow, “because it was bright and cheerful.”

Another skit based on the poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, was also a hit, both for its humour and given how well-planned it was. Pula says she would describe the energy around that skit as purple/navy-blue. “It was deep and seemed to have a lot of meaning while being exciting at the same time,” she says.

The OMNIway will be posting stories that feature the skits in the next few days.

About 100 leaders from across OMNI Health Care’s long-term care homes are attending the forum, which wraps up today at noon.

In addition to the team presentations, workshops at the forum have centred on the following topics:
–    Resident incident investigations
–    Non-violent confrontation management
–    Legislation and Regulation Review
–    Safety First
–    Leadership and management
