New release: “La reconnaissance et l’autoreconnaissance des personnes proches aidantes : enjeux et pratiques”

During the National Caregivers Week 2023, discover the Observatory’s new publication and latest webinar "La reconnaissance et l’autoreconnaissance des personnes proches aidantes : enjeux et pratiques"
7 November 2023

For institutional, community and scientific stakeholders, an essential first step in supporting caregivers is recognition — not just the caregiver’s ability to recognize and appreciate their role, but also the ability of those around them. Recent investigations conducted by the Observatory offer valuable insights into caregiver recognition and self-identification, particularly regarding the definition of, benefits of and challenges to recognizing the role. This work has also led to a compilation of practices from here and elsewhere to encourage recognition.

The findings were recently published in a report (in French) entitled “La reconnaissance et l’autoreconnaissance: enjeux et pratiques” and were also the focus of a webinar (in French) produced jointly with the Communauté de pratique Proche aidance that aired on October 25.
