Geriatric Education Initiative

Geriatric Education Initiative

Seniors Care Network is pleased to announce the 6th Geriatric Education Initiative (GEI). The GEI is a tuition reimbursement/grant program available to support point of care staff in the Central East Region who have completed continuing professional development related to improving geriatric/gerontological knowledge and skills. Since 2015/16 the GEI fund has supported more than 450 individuals.

Funding is intended to reimburse base tuition or registration fees during the 2021-2022 fiscal year. Applicants may be eligible to receive up to a maximum of $2,000 in reimbursement.

Please note there is no guarantee that funding will be granted. Seniors Care Network will consider applications for courses completed from April 1, 2021 until March 31, 2022, that address learning outcomes specific to the Framework for Interprofessional Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment.

Funding for the GEI is based on re-allocation of unused, surplus funds. Availability of surplus funds is determined at the end of the fiscal year.

Applications for the 2021/2022 GEI are now closed. Thank you to those who applied.
