Webinar Series: Patient Partnership in a Time of COVID-19

Since 2010, the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement has led and championed partnerships with patients, family and caregivers to improve quality across the continuum of care. But the COVID-19 pandemic brings a new reality to patient partnerships as we, together, navigate a fast-moving healthcare sector with high pressure and increased risks.

Together with our partners, the CFHI is hosting a series of discussion webinars to facilitate pan-Canadian conversations about patient engagement during this pandemic.

Spotlight Series

The Spotlight Series is a responsive webinar series that raises the voice of Canada’s healthcare improvers and innovators to shed light on ways to address the most pressing challenges in healthcare across Canada. The series will feature strategies for improvement that are transferable and offer benefit in the longer-term, for example, ways to embed sustained improvements and nurture an enabling environment for improvers and improvement alike.

Webinar Discussion Series: Community Dementia Care and Support

There are more than 419,000 Canadians aged 65 years and older diagnosed with dementia; and more than 78,000 new cases diagnosed every year among this age group. In addition, more than 460,000 people living in Canada are care partners for a person living with dementia. For many people, living well means living independently, or in their homes and communities, and for as long as possible. As dementia progresses, people can require more help with daily activities, which is often provided by family or friends as care partners.

Working together with partners and people dedicated to improving the experience of care for people living with dementia and care partners, we have identified emerging and demonstrated innovations that have improved early diagnosis of dementia and coordination and navigation of community supports.
