Embracing family caregivers in co-design, EENet Family Caregiver CoI Webinar Series

December 7, 2017

12:00-1:00 p.m. EST

Join this upcoming webinar and explore two co-design projects:

  • the EMBRACE project, a Changing CARE initiative funded by the Change Foundation that aims to improve the interaction between family caregivers and addiction and mental health providers; and
  • the Family Inclusion Model project, a project funded by a Bell Let’s Talk grant that aims to improve two-way communication between family caregivers and in-patient psychiatry staff and psychiatrists.

The webinar objectives are to:

  • Showcase how family caregivers have been included at the strategic and operational level within the projects; and
  • Share successes and lessons learned in co-designing with family caregivers.

The presenters

  • Christine Penney, Vice President of Community Programs at Cornwall Hospital
  • Sharyn Duffey, Family Peer Support Worker, Community Addiction and Mental Health Services at Cornwall Hospital
