Understanding for action
In line with its scientific mission on care in partnership with the community, the Chair offers information resources on COVID-19 to equip caregivers in our community (health professionals, family caregivers, community workers, patients and citizens).
Our objectives are:
1. To help community caregivers identify reliable sources of information on COVID-19 to inform their own actions;
2. Foster the emergence of community-based solutions to address COVID-19 with citizens, professionals, caregivers and patients;
3. Learn, in real time, about effective community and citizen initiatives and disseminate this knowledge.
