I am please to advised that Ann Elford has accepted the new full time Clinical Coordinator position effective January 7, 2019. In this new role Ann will deliver skills training to our staff and gradually take on accountability for resident intakes. For the first several months Ann’s primary focus will be to develop an understanding of clinical training needs and develop the programs and approaches to address gaps and improve skill levels. Although Ann will ultimately report directly to Betty, for the first 6 months she will report to Dr. Alex and myself; this will enable the role to become established without impacting Betty’s capacity. Ann has a tremendous amount of skilled knowledge in hospice palliative care and a passion for providing care that she is eager to share. Please join me in congratulating Ann on her new role.
