In this session delegates will:

  • explore and articulate the role of physicians in ensuring the delivery of appropriate care for seniors considering the issues and challenges seniors and their families currently face, also reviewing tools and resources for physicians
  • identify priority actions for CMA to support physicians in providing appropriate care for seniors, focusing on areas of direct CMA influence with measurable outcomes over the next 1-3 years

Results will provide direction for specific action/initiatives to advance the development and support the implementation of a national senior’s strategy. A summary report from this workshop will be discussed at the strategic session to assist in informing further debate.
