#HASTALKS is a seminar series curated by The Department of Health, Aging & Society at McMaster University.


Time for a Long-Term Care System Reform in Canada?: lessons from other countries

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the importance of care, and the failure of our long-term care system to adequately protect older people, particularly residents of long-term care home. This has led to calls for a long-term care system reform. What are some possible options for the future of Canada’s long-term care system? In this seminar, Professor Peng draws some lessons from Japan, South Korea and Germany, three OECD countries that have introduced universal long-term care insurance, and discusses how we might apply some of their experiences to improve our long-term care system.
