Take Care, Canada: Can self-care help save healthcare?
COVID-19 puts a bright spotlight on our own health and lifestyles as well as the healthcare system as a whole. For the past ten months, Canadians were asked to make the right choices to protect themselves, their families, and their communities from the risk of the coronavirus.

But even before the global pandemic, the idea that people want to, and can, take better care of themselves was spreading. Thanks to increased access to health information, a broader range of health professionals, and a growing selection consumer health products, Canadians have never before had the tools and information to take better care of themselves.

At the end of 2020, Abacus Data conducted a national public opinion survey commissioned by Food, Health, and Consumer Products of Canada, the national association representing the country’s food, beverage, health, and consumer product manufacturers.
The survey explored how public perceptions about the health system, attitudes towards the concept of self-care, and the desire for a national self-care strategy.

Hosted and moderated by Abacus Data's Chief Executive, David Coletto.

Hear from David as he shares results from the national survey while moderating a discussion with leading public policy and health leaders about how a National Self-Care Strategy could improve health outcomes for Canadians and improve the sustainability of the publicly-funded healthcare system.

Panelists include:

Dr. Nardine Nakhla, Clinical Lecturer at the University of Waterloo School of Pharmacy

Judy Steinmark, Director General at the Global Self-Care Federation

Kristine Sørensen, PhD, President of the International Health Literacy Association

Gerry Harrington, Senior Advisor at Food, Health, and Consumer Products of Canada.
