Supporting Caregivers Supports Patients- The Critical Role of Primary Care in Preventing Caregiver Burnout
HOSTED BY The ONTARIO CAREGIVER ORGANIZATION and PRIMARY CARE COLLABORATIVE
There are 4 million caregivers across Ontario, providing an estimated 75% of the care to family members, partners, friends, or neighbours. Caregiver well-being has an impact on patient health outcomes – well-supported caregivers are more likely to provide better care. Primary care providers can play a key role in preventing burnout and enhancing caregiver well-being by initiating early interventions and connecting caregivers to support.
