Live and recorded educational webinars in relation to the current pediatric surge. Connected Care offers a library of self-directed education and practice resources and access to recorded webinars. This is an excellent resource and SickKids is encouraging community hospitals to share this education.


Ontario Health (OH) is pleased to launch an Immediate Response Emergency Departments (ED) Nurse Education Program to support small, rural, and remote EDs during summer and fall of 2023 by providing nurses with immediate access to ED nursing education. This program is being offered to nurses who may be full-time, part-time, or casual hospital RNs and RPNs, as well as agency nurses who work regularly with your organization. The course calendar will be continuously updated as new courses become available.

OH will continue to add new courses to the course calendar so stay tuned for updates; and, if you have any resources to provide training please email EmergencyServices@ontariohealth.ca.  

For courses with high demand, confirmation of registration will be prioritized for nurses from sites with the highest need for ED education, with training opportunities spread equitably among these sites (e.g., small, rural, and remote EDs that do not have regular access to an ED Nurse Educator). Additionally, to supplement these courses, ED Nurse Educators have compiled a list of self-learning materials that can be shared with all your ED nurses to gain additional knowledge on clinical topics, accessible here: https://ontariohealth.arlo.co/w/support/.


E-learning educational modules recommended by SickKids and CHEO. Learners must create a login to track progression. Once access is granted, navigate to the critical care platform and enroll in the desired courses. No cost.

To participate individuals must sign up free of charge, and create an individual login. They are also able to facilitate simulation and point of care workshops as arranged via your departmental leads.
