Self-Care Learning and Discovery Series
so you don’t miss this session on Thursday, 12 August:
Self-Care and Strengthening the Patient-Provider Dynamic. We will explore how provider attitudes and competencies need to shift to support clients in safe, quality self-care, and how to support providers
in this evolving role. Participants will gain various perspectives on questions like; “how does self-care fit into clients’ health goals and where do providers fit into this journey? How can midwives support and promote self-care among young people? What factors
help healthcare providers facilitate client uptake and continuation of preventive self-care behaviors and products?” Participants will also engage in discussion and Q&A with panelists, and partake in small-group exercises to unpack the barriers and benefits
for provider-supported self-care, the shifts needed among healthcare providers, and what support is needed to assist healthcare providers in this evolution of their role.
