Maggie will introduce webinar participants to a new e-learning resource that is now available on the CDRAKE website. The e-learning resource was developed to contribute to international efforts to confront the fact that older adults, especially those who are frail and those with dementia, are at greatest risk in emergencies and disasters. Maggie will describe the evolution of the new resource, which has included consultation with health care practitioners and emergency management professionals across Canada. Some of you may have been part of this process. She’ll take learners to the CDRAKE website and demonstrate the look and feel of the four e-learning modules. It is hoped that participants will leave the webinar with an appetite to learn more about how frailty, dementia and disasters create a situation of triple jeopardy for older adults, and how they can help to improve the status quo. Participants will be given options for continuing their learning.
