Marilyn Steffel, Staff Development Coordinator at St. Patrick’s Residence in Naperville, IL, has found that AIG’s in-service materials work well for educating staff in novel ways. The In-Service Library Program features unlimited access to 20+ in-services with more being added. The in-services are typically used to help fulfill CEUs for staff; however, Marilyn has found that creative uses of the materials help staff retain the knowledge they gain.
In June 2017, the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, aided by the Avila Institute of Gerontology, launched a new website dedicated to palliative care. The Carmelite Sisters’ philosophy has always taught the concept of palliative care and it is the Sisters’ goal that the new website, www.carmelitepalliative.org, help residents, families and caregivers understand palliative care and its importance in providing holistic, person-centered care.
In September 2015, the Avila Institute of Gerontology launched a Membership Program offering monthly in-services as a yearly Subscription. The Membership Program also offered articles, a community forum, and discounts for all AIG educational events. Recently we have renamed the program to the “In-service Subscription Program” and will continue to offer the Program with new in-services and live streaming.
