Inequality, underfunding, understaffing, the role of technology in healthcare, quality of life – there are countless universal themes which have come to the forefront during the COVID-19 pandemic. These themes have created an urgency for health systems across the country to acknowledge the unintended consequences of the pandemic and reconcile relationships amongst health system leaders, providers, patients/residents, and families.
The Canadian Association of Long-term Care’s ECHO sessions unpack the role of long-term care leaders and administrators in palliative care at the home level, and create a platform for long-term care colleagues from across the country to discuss challenges and opportunities for improvement within homes.
