The culture and context of health and community care systems to support family caregivers must be improved. Our consultations, and those of other caregiving scholars, found ingrained practices, attitudes, policies, and traditions do not support consideration of the family caregiver’s own needs, nor do they enable support provision to family caregivers. Culture is deeply embedded in people’s values, assumptions, behaviors, and attitudes. In essence, culture develops in the context of everyday practice. Helen Bevan (Chief Change Officer in the UK Health System) said that to transform the culture and context of care, we need to change hearts and minds at scale. This webinar aims to answer the question, What strategies and policies are needed to change the culture and context of care to support family caregivers?”
