Promoting the Health of Workers and Older Adults in Long-Term Care Homes With Access to Nature

Share Event

Event Updated..

This seminar will highlight the relationships between the natural environment (e.g., vegetation, daylight, fresh air, sky, water, weather, and animals) and outcomes in long-term care homes, focusing on a recent mixed method investigation on the mental health and well-being of healthcare workers and the older adults they care for. The outcomes that will be discussed include work-related stress, burnout, turnover intention, and responsive behaviour. Practical implications from this study will present opportunities for future research and potential interventions to include in the development and renovations of long-term care homes. While the designs of long-term care homes aim to reduce harm, is it also promoting positive health?

Speaker: Dr. Peggy Chi, PhD, MLA, CSLA, OALA | Landscape architect and Postdoctoral Fellow at IHPME
