Targeting Isolation has developed self-paced e-modules for healthcare workers and community volunteers/staff of organizations that serve older adults. These e-modules provide information on the health impacts of social isolation and loneliness, how to talk about social isolation and loneliness, how to look for signs, and how to refer older Manitobans to community services. E-modules take about 45 minutes to complete and participants obtain a certificate of completion. The healthcare provider e-module has been accredited for pharmacists through the Canadian Council on Continuing Education in Pharmacy (2.0 CEUs).
