Live webinar: How Do We Carry On? Transitions in Health Services During the Pandemic and Beyond with Dr Jennifer Zelmer Featured

 

About the session

While some remain focused on immediate outbreak response, others are entering a transition phase, asking not 'when will this end?' but 'how will we carry on?'. We'll explore this evolving 'now normal,' addressing vulnerabilities the pandemic has highlighted and opportunities to move towards stronger patient and community partnerships in care, care closer to home and community, re-imagining care for older adults, and more.
