Abstract/Description

Family caregivers (FCGs) provide 70-90% of the care for the Albertans with serious illness. Providing care can be uplifting, yet the proportion of distressed caregivers has increased. How should health providers support FCGs? We will introduce you to our Caregiver Centered Care-competency-based education for providers who interact with FCGs. In this session, you will learn how to provide caregiver centered care--person-centered care for FCGs. Participants can earn their Foundational Caregiver-Centered Care Certificate.
