Webinar – Family Presence

Family Presence _Dec2015revJan8


As noted earlier, there is a Family Presence Campaign underway in Alberta. Part of this campaign sees the promotion of 24/7 visiting hours in Alberta’s care facilities.

The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) also has a campaign focusing on family presence. Related to this, there is a webinar on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016 at 10:00 a.m., MST, entitled, “Better Together: Canadian Case Studies.” This presentation will highlight the Ottawa Hospital, which adopted family presence policies in September 2015. The webinar is free and is apt to have some valuable information.
