We’re honoured to be one of the 2018 Global Person-Centered Care Innovation Award recipients, presented by Planetree International, a global leader in driving patient-centered care for over 40 years.
Join other caregivers, system leaders, policy makers, and influencers and be the first to learn about the change ideas, innovations and resources The Change Foundation and our Changing CARE partners have created to better recognize, support and integrate family caregivers in their health and community care organizations.
The Netherlands faces similar challenges to Ontario in getting healthcare organizations on board to collaborate with and support caregivers.
In May 2018, Carole Ann Alloway, a family caregiver, and I partnered to develop and present a keynote address at the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) annual conference in Utrecht, The Netherlands. A few months after our presentation I asked Carole Ann to reflect on her experience.
On the precipice of change, we stand to take the growing provincial interest in young carers and turn that into a national framework.
Just as there are many ways to roast a chicken, whip together a savory pesto, or bake a chocolate cake, there are many ways to go about creating meaningful change at a system, organizational, provider, patient and family caregiver level.
People often ask us how to truly co-design and engage with caregivers and healthcare providers. In Lessons from Changing CARE: The Discovery Phase of Experience-Based Co-Design, we do our best to answer that question.
I knew we had something special, and I knew it lended itself to an engaging multi-media approach. So we set out together to create the Caregiver Wishlist.
Now that we’re more than a year into Changing CARE, it’s the ideal time for us to stop and reflect on the collective path we’ve taken so far, and release our learnings on the engagement phase of co-design.
Their journeys, their voices, their wishlist.
