On November 28, join us to hear from Isobel Mackenzie, BC's Seniors Advocate, and Chris Graham, the CEO of the Picker Institute Europe, about what they have learned from older adults. In this session you will learn about the art and science of obtaining and using information collected directly from patients and their family caregivers aimed at improving the continuity and quality of care for older adults during these transitions.

There will also be a webinar option available for those that are unable to attend in person. As tickets are limited for both the webinar and in-person seminar, we ask that you please RSVP via Eventbrite. A poster for the event can be downloaded HERE.

The event is organized as part of a national collaboration (funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research) on “A Meta-Narrative Review of Patient- and Family-Reported Experience and Outcome Measures Across Transitions of Care for Frail Seniors Living at Home” led by Lena Cuthbertson, Kara Schick-Makaroff, and Rick Sawatzky.

Location Cullen Family Lecture Theatre, St. Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver
