Who are LEAP Facilitators?Pallium Canada's LEAP Facilitators are healthcare professionals (Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, Social Workers, etc.) who have completed Pallium's Facilitator Training course and have signed the Terms of Use Agreement. LEAP Facilitators facilitate LEAP courses. In some situations they also:
  1. Communicate with LEAP Participants
  2. Advertise LEAP courses
  3. Plan venues and catering
  4. Manage sessions in the Pallium Portal
What are important Pallium Portal terms to understand as a LEAP Facilitator? Course:
A "course" is the general term for a specific curriculum (e.g. LEAP Core, LEAP Mini, LEAP LTC, etc.). Each LEAP course has its own dedicated page in the Pallium Portal.

Session:
A "session" is an instance of a course and is held at a specific time and location. We use "sessions" to organize our LEAP courses so we can keep track of where they occurred and who attended them.
