Policy matters, and good advocacy can shape the future of care for generations to come. Baroness Jill Pitkeathley, dubbed “mother of the caregiving movement,” has been at the frontlines of care advocacy in the United Kingdom for decades. As a campaigner for Carers UK, she successfully pushed for substantive reform. Now in the House of Lords, Baroness Pitkeathley uses her position to advance the care agenda at in the highest corridors of power. What has she learned from a lifetime of care advocacy? What lessons can we take as we embark on our own care policy campaigns? Hear from Baroness Pitkeathley in conversation with Dr. Brian Goldman, veteran ER physician, medical columnist, author, host of CBC’s acclaimed podcast, White Coat, Black Art and, most recently, caregiver to his sister.
