Yes. However, if the participant numbers for Gentle Persuasive Approaches in Dementia Care (see below)

Yes. You may have problems with sound, the projector or laptop, or the internet connection, and you may
not have support from someone at the workshop location. You will need to troubleshoot these issues.

We typically provide at least a month’s notice for an upcoming workshop. Sometimes, we’ll need a facilitator
with shorter notice. You’re welcome to accept or reject any requests to facilitate.

We may be able to run seconded workshops at your site. This will depend on your site’s interest in hosting, its
training space, and whether there’s interest in workshops in your region. All your secondments will take place
within your region.

Arrive 30 minutes before each workshop. Use that time to set up for the workshop, test equipment (e.g.
videos, sound, projector), and become familiar with the housekeeping information that must be shared with
participants (e.g. emergency exits, washrooms, Wi-Fi information).

Yes. Show the video at the start of each session. Ask if participants have any questions about SafeCare BC or the
services SafeCare BC can provide

SafeCare BC's programs and events coordinator provides sign-in sheets for each workshop. At the beginning of
each workshop, ensure each participant signs in and legibly prints their email address. We send workshop
certificates by email. SafeCare BC needs to know who's attending each workshop in case of emergency. During
the first break, please take a photo of the sign-in sheet with your smartphone and email it to

At the start of the day, inform participants that they will not receive a certificate if they do not attend the
workshop. Participants cannot arrive late or leave early. The only exception is if a person misses a small section
of the day and you’re willing and able to catch that person up during the lunch hour or after the workshop on
your own time. Otherwise, participants will not receive a certificate.

Please inform participants immediately if they will not receive a certificate for missing a part of the day. Direct
participants to speak with SafeCare BC if they’d like to discuss why they will not receive a certificate.

Yes. Near the end of the workshop, write the survey code on the whiteboard/flip chart paper for participants to
complete the workshop evaluation survey with their smartphones. When possible, all participants should be
given the Wi-Fi information for the site at this time.

Within 30 days post-workshop, your organization is required to submit an invoice to SafeCare BC for your time
and for any expenses incurred from facilitation for SafeCare BC (e.g. mileage, meals, parking).
