In this 60-minute webinar Lisa Ashley and Artem Safarov will share the journey and outcomes of this innovative work, answering the question, what actions are required to ensure a national home care program that enables patients to recover from an illness or injury, manage long-term conditions, and live out ones’ final days in their own homes? Lisa and Artem will provide details on how the federal government can take a leadership role in partnership with provinces, health care providers, patients, and carers to achieve more and better home care today and for the future.
