ICCER Networking Event: Enhancing Mealtimes in Long-Term Care 

Join us on Friday, October 6th with a presentation from Dr. Susan Slaughter (Associate Professor, Faculty of Nursing, University of Alberta). Susan will be speaking about the Making the Most of Mealtimes (M3) study. 

In this session, Susan will draw upon the health care literature, findings and the knowledge and experience of participants to discuss how the mealtime experience, the meal quality and meal access all work together to support  food and fluid intake of long-term care residents, and  to enhance their quality of life.


Dr. Slaughter's presentation will be followed by round table discussions with researchers, policy makers, employers and community/continuing care providers. An opportunity to network included!

Please note: This event is FREE for faculty, staff and students of ICCER member organizations* and for individual ICCER members (new!). A $25 registration fee is required for non-members to attend. See the list of ICCER member organizations at the bottom of the page!
