Continuing the conversation: Mobilizing collective action for long-term care reform in Canada

RNAO organized a groundbreaking cross country meeting to engage collective action for long-term care reform in Canada. The Health System Transformation & COVID-19 Webinar occurred on Nov. 9. You can watch the seminar here.

On Dec. 14, between 6:45 to 8 p.m., we will continue that conversation. The event will be moderated once again by Globe and Mail columnist André Picard, the author of Neglected No More: The Urgent Need to Improve the Lives of Canada's Elders in the Wake of a Pandemic. All are invited to attend including anyone across Canada who cares about seniors and wants to join forces to inspire our provincial, territorial and the federal governments to establish national standards for LTC and to take additional action to support people staying in their homes longer.

Register online.

  • Nathan Stall, staff geriatrician at Sinai Health System
  • Doris Grinspun, RNAO CEO
