We're delighted to welcome Larry Worthen, Executive Director of CMDA Canada - Christian Medical and Dental Association of Canada as the closing plenary speaker for CHPCA's virtual Learning Institute.

Join us for this two-day, in-depth learning experience.
Connaissez-vous une personne proche aidante? Au Québec, près d’une (1) personne sur quatre (4) apporte un soutien à un membre de son entourage qui présente une incapacité temporaire ou permanente. S’engager dans un rôle d’aidant n’est pas toujours un choix et exige beaucoup de ténacité. Ces personnes méritent que nous leur offrions collectivement le coup de pouce d’humanisme dont elles ont besoin. Du 6 au 12 novembre, saluons l’implication des personnes proches aidantes et les organismes communautaires qui les accompagnent dans leur parcours. Découvrez les activités offertes dans votre région en visitant www.procheaidance.quebec/snppa
Ensemble, cultivons l’humain ! 💙

Motivations and Realities of Compassionate Care Companies in Changing Times: Exploring the Evolution of Compassionate Care Companies
CHPCA is proud to be partnered with a carer-friendly initiative being led by Dr. Allison Williams from McMaster University. Dr. Williams’ project is focused on growing the number of carer-friendly workplaces across Canada and throughout the world through mobilizing a range of tools to assist organizations in adopting carer-friendly practices for their carer-workers.
Without effective workplace supports, employees, who must balance work and care responsibilities (carer-workers, sometimes called carer-employees), are more likely to experience reduced performance and increased absenteeism, with some even deciding to retire early or quit their jobs. From an employer’s perspective, implementing effective carer-inclusive workplace practices will ensure carer-employees are both supported and productive. Further, such carer supportive policies minimize turn-around and maximize retention of employees, particularly those who are older than 45 and often the most experienced workforce.
One of the outcomes of this partnership is a two-part webinar series that highlights the progressive work of CHPCA’s Canadian Compassionate Companies (CCC) in supporting carers within their organizations.
The first webinar entitled “Motivations and Realities of Compassionate Care Companies in Changing Times: Exploring the Evolution of Compassionate Care Companies”, will explore the experiences of three Compassionate Care Companies. This webinar will present findings from ongoing research addressing motivations for and experience of being a CCC, as well as provide the opportunity to learn from a panel of three CCC representatives about how they have been able to pivot to best meet the needs of their carer-employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. The panellists will also answer questions related to ways in which care-workers have been supported in the workplace.
