A spokesperson said, “The session will be presented by therapists of the Physio and Occupational Therapy unit of the Department of Health. The session is a part of a series of education opportunities planned for long-term care professionals, inclusive of nurses, nursing assistants and related support staff.

“The BPLN is a newly formed body of long-term care administrators who have joined to promote education & growth opportunities for LTC providers. BPLN’s leadership consists of Mrs. Judith Jones [Chairperson], Ms. Whitney Mathew [Deputy] and Ms. Elijah Outerbridge [Secretary]. Age Concern provides administrative and coordinative support.”

According to Dr. Claudette Fleming, who is Age Concern’s project lead on this initiative, “We are pleased to see the fruition of the BPLN that seeks to fill a local training gap. Training topics have been endorsed by the BPLN Executive and topics have been created in consultation with the Bermuda Health Council. The aim is to also have the sessions approved by the Bermuda Nursing and Midwifery Council, when sessions are targeted toward nursing professional.”

The spokesperson said, “The last few years have been extremely trying for the long-term care sector. The BPLN series of training will help to sharpen knowledge and skills of peers in the industry who are seeking to find local training support.
