Continuity across transitions in care: What do older adults tell us?

There can be large gaps in care for older adults and their family caregivers during transitions from hospital to home or primary care. Join us to hear from Isobel Mackenzie, BC’s Seniors Advocate, and Chris Graham, the CEO of the Picker Institute Europe, about what they have learned from older adults. Rick Sawatzky, Canada Research Chair in Person-Centred Outcomes, will introduce both speakers.

In this session you will learn about the art and science of obtaining and using information collected directly from patients and their family caregivers aimed at improving the continuity and quality of care for older adults during these transitions.

For those who are unable to attend in person, webinar access is available. Tickets are limited; please RSVP via Eventbrite. Click here to download the event poster.
