Inaugural “Care to Debate” seeks best ideas to improve seniors care

What is your number one idea on how to improve seniors care in our country?

This is the question that will be asked its first ever Care to Debate event, which is being held at this year’s 40th Anniversary annual conference in Whistler, BC.

When it comes to finding solutions to improve and innovate the long term care sector, there are plenty of compelling ideas out there. Our #CareCanBeThere campaign has encapsulated 30 recommendations for the immediate, medium and longer term that we believe will drive better care outcomes.

But finding the single best idea to improve care? That will be hotly debated at Whistler!

The contest to become one of our Care to Debaters is open to all members of the public, including BCCPA members, sponsors, and students.

To apply, please fill out the motion Word document template (right click, then save), which includes background information and details on the motion proposed, as well as reasons why it should be selected as the top motion.

Up to five individuals will be chosen to outline their motion (up to five minutes each) in front of all delegates at our Annual Conference. This is a great opportunity to bring forward great ideas that will inform and influence delegates at western Canada’s largest conference on continuing care.
