Putting care providers on the map: Emerging data

Monday, November 6th
2:30 – 3:20 p.m.

Care providers are the unseen and unheard workforce that underpins our health and social care systems. To date, there has been insufficient data on this key part of our care landscape. Reform is necessary to support and develop this workforce, address systemic worker shortages, and close critical labour gaps. This session will examine what we know already and how we can fill data gaps to better inform future policy to support our care workforce.
