LIPHA is an innovative and effective virtual simulation-based learning platform

LIPHA is designed to enhance the education, training and onboarding of a skilled workforce in the seniors’ care sector. LIPHA’s game-based design and immersive learning approaches, including the use of virtual simulations, help learners to not only develop foundational knowledge on long-term care best practices, safety, and teamwork but also to apply their learning by practicing providing care to realistic, simulated LTC residents.

"The team at LIPHA was spectacular with their supportive approach, commitment and knowledge making this experience seamless. I am grateful the students had the opportunity to explore a virtual simulation experience to supplement their long-term care clinical practice. For many international nursing students, this is their first exposure to long term care facilities and the simulation provided foundational support. The students benefited from not only from virtual interactive involvement, but also from reading current literature embedded in the simulation. This prefaced classroom discussions bridging theory to clinical practice."

LIPHA aims to improve the capacity and competence levels of students and team members in long-term care, and support recruitment and retention in the sector.

A college, university or LTC home can quickly signup to the platform and start using the learning materials immediately.

Learners receive instant feedback to help foster skills, attitudes and behaviours that support person-centered and relational care.

"Oh, I would recommend this, definitely. I would just tell them that it can be quite challenging or intimidating at first, especially for those like me who are not used to this kind of approach. Number one is you have your time for yourself where you can learn on your own pace."
