    Abstract

    In many jurisdictions, seniors’ residential care policies are requiring a higher standard of accommodation, such as increased proportions of single room occupancy in long-term care (LTC). Such policy changes, along with heightened care needs of older adults in residential care are leading to increased redevelopments of outdated LTC facilities. Transitioning residents and staff together from one facility into another can be a stressful and complex process. This presentation details the development of guidelines to inform LTC relocations that support staff and resident wellbeing. World Café workshops, an interactive data gathering and knowledge-sharing method, were conducted across Canada bringing together staff, administrators, and other stakeholders with experience of mass interinstitutional relocations. World Cafés allowed for knowledge sharing and new knowledge creation through a deliberative dialogue process. Results indicated how this technique contributed to the development of relevant guidelines and built relationships critical for the dissemination of the guidelines.
