Presenter: Michael Wilson, PhD

This webinar will present findings from a citizen panel convened by the McMaster Health Forum in November 2014, which provided participants an opportunity to share their ideas and experiences related to improving care and support for unpaid caregivers. Panel participants were provided with a citizen brief that summarized in lay language what is known about the underlying problem, three options to address the problem and implementation considerations, and the panel consisted of facilitated deliberations about each of these areas.
