VIDEO: Nursing students create skits to help illustrate RNAO best practice guidelines for Riverview team

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. – Two Trent University nursing students spent several weeks at Riverview Manor at the end of 2019 working on a project to demonstrate to the Peterborough long-term care home’s front-line staff members the effectiveness of two key themes from the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario’s (RNAO’s) best practice guidelines.

As part of their project, Alana Mahoney and Dmitri Kulikov created a workshop in the form of skits that simulate interactions between residents and staff members that are based on these guidelines.

One module focuses on developing therapeutic relationships with residents; the other centres on building empowering relationships between residents and staff members.
