Education and Product In-Services

Ontario Medical Supply, in partnership with other members of the Desjardins Healthcare group, provides a comprehensive education program for Healthcare professionals and Institutional Personnel.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • Provide opportunities for quality and consistent education geared particularly to healthcare professionals and resident care.
  • Ensure an interactive learning process that builds on the skills and needs of participants.
  • Provide the most appropriate and convenient education and training opportunities possible through collaboration with our external resources, accreditation processes and National Health Awareness Topics.
  • Provide a program that is flexible in meeting our client’s needs.

Our facility at 1100 Algoma Road contains a seminar room with seating for 40, complete with audio/visual equipment accommodation, and a kitchen area for refreshments. We also provide seminars on-site at larger facilities, to benefit the staff and their patients.

All our seminars are conducted by healthcare professionals, and some can be used for ORCA accreditation. Certificates for Nursing Reflective Practices are provided, where applicable.

In general, the education program is scheduled so that topics coincide with the National Health Awareness calendar. Topics include Infection Control, Prevention of Elder Abuse, Alzheimer Awareness, Fall Prevention, Diabetes, Arthritis, Incontinence and Skin Care Management, IV Therapy, Compression Therapy, and more. Clients can request custom topics as well.

OMS conducts other educational events, for example, clinics. Our professional staff has given clinics such as the Lift and Transfer Clinic, and a Walker Clinic, which includes free tune-ups.

To ensure healthcare providers get the most out of our products, OMS provides Product In-services on request. Common ones include Incontinence and Skin Care Products, Wound Care Products, NPWT (Negative Pressure Wound Therapy), Pressure Relief Surfaces, International Normalized Ratio (INR) Monitoring Systems, Infection Control products, and IV and Feeding pumps.

Product In-services are designed to provide training on equipment and supplies as well as usage instructions on delivery and maintenance of our products.
