$2.2M in funding goes to expansion of UBCO, UAlberta collaborative project Nav-CARE

March 8, 2021

Health Canada will provide $2.2M to a collaborative program developed by researchers at the University of British Columbia Okanagan and the University of Alberta. The funding will allow the Nav-CARE (Navigation- Connecting, Accessing, Resourcing, Engaging) program, which connects trained volunteers to people who are living at home with declining health, to expand to 15 centres of excellence with 30 satellite sites. Through the funding, the Nav-CARE toolkit and training resources, which supports those providing care, will be adapted for online use. The resources will also be adapted for Francophones, Indigenous populations, and those caring for persons living with dementia. UBCO (BC | AB)
