Updated information about accessing COVID Care Learning

The College has been encouraged to share these COVID-19 education resources on to support occupational therapists if you are redeployed.

The rapid rise and severity of COVID-19 cases may result in large redeployments of health professionals across the system. We are committed to helping you prepare if you are one of the individuals who are redeployed – and thank you for your help during these challenging times.  

  • Use these free resources curated for COVID-19 education: At the onset of the pandemic, a provincial team launched the platform as an essential learning tool for redeployed personnel.
  • Below are instructions on how to login to this free resource and FAQs. The goal of this site is to refresh your clinical knowledge and upskill redeployed personnel as they care for COVID-19 patients in various environments. 

The materials on this website cover an array of topics for those working in adult and pediatric hospital settings and long-term care. It also features resources about vaccination, infection control and team-based models of care, in addition to several other content areas.

The site is continually updated as we learn more about COVID-19. It is available to every person in health and long-term care who wishes to use it. Should you or your team have a unique educational need that does not currently exist on the platform, or you would like to make a content recommendation, please message

You can share this resource with your health and long-term care colleagues in Ontario only. Please do not post the access code on any public facing materials, websites, or on social media.

How do I share what’s happening at our hospital or long-term care facility, and any specific needs that are arising? 

We would value hearing from you about the education you are using, which may be beneficial to our colleagues across the Province. If you have resources or emergent practices you are interested in sharing more broadly, you are welcome to share it on this platform. Please e-mail to share with our team. 


Is this education mandatory? 

No. Healthcare providers are encouraged to review the content they feel will help to prepare them for redeployment. Some hospitals and long-term care facilities may offer guidance as to what resources are most applicable for you to review.
