U-First!® Advanced 

What is U-First!®?

U-First!® is an innovative education program for all members of the care team that are supporting people with behaviour changes due to dementia or other cognitive impairment. This includes health care providers in a direct care role and care partners (family and friends). The U-First Framework is a person centred approach to looking at the whole person.

What is U-First!® Advanced?

U-First!® Advanced is a new education program for health care staff  who provide direct care, who have already taken U-First!® and want to enhance their skills and ability to apply the U-First!® Framework.

This 6 hour education program will help you to:

  • Deepen your understanding and ability to apply the U-First! Framework
  • Improve collaboration among all members of the team, including care partners
  • Increase the wellbeing of people experiencing behaviour changes
  • Reduce stress and increase job satisfaction for you and for others on the team
Training Dates: (you have to attend both days to complete the training)
Wednesday, November 4 and
Friday, November 6
Time: from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Who should attend?

U-First!® Advanced is for healthcare professionals who have previously taken part in a U-First!® Workshop or Online course and want to enhance their skills and ability to apply the U-First!® Framework.

What’s involved in the program?

  • This is an interactive learning approach that asks participants to reflect on their experiences, engage with new content, practice using a variety of methods including case studies and plan how they will implement what they have learned.
  • Learners receive a Participant Workbook and a U-First!® Wheel to use during the program and to keep as useful resources for applying their learning.
  • The pilot of this program also includes an evaluation process with surveys and interviews for a sample of the group. The aim of the evaluation is to better understand the effectiveness and outcomes of the program. All learners will be invited to participate in evaluation activities but will not be excluded from the program if they choose not to participate in the evaluation.

What’s the cost for the program?

In exchange for full participation and extensive feedback, there is no fee for the pilot of this delivery format.

Cerificate will be issued upon succesful completion of the training requirements.
