Changing Talk: Online Training (CHATO)

Goal

The goal of the CHATO course is to increase awareness of the importance of effective communication with older adults and to use evidence-based, person-centered communication during interactions with older adults in nursing homes and other health care settings.

Intended Audience

This course is designed for staff in independent and assistive living, nursing homes and health care settings in the community that include registered nurses, nursing assistants, nursing home dieticians, direct care professionals, other administrations and support employees.

Length

The total program is approximately three hours and 15 minutes, split into three modules and the evaluation. Each module is approximately an hour, depending on the individual user. The evaluation is approximately 15 minutes. Upon completion of all three modules, the evaluation, and 70 percent on a posttest, a certificate of completion (three nursing contact hours) will be awarded.
