On April 8, 2016, Dr. Cindy Forbes spoke at the Nova Scotia Federation of Union Retirees Convention in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In attendance were approximately 50 individuals mostly from union organizations in the province.
Dr. Forbes spoke primarily about the CMA’s current advocacy activities on seniors care and updated participants about the Demand A Plan campaign.
Delegates greatly appreciated Dr. Forbes presentation and availability to answer questions on issues such as the health accord, home care, end of life and collaborative care (the collaboration of several different professions for patients).
Of particular note, Global News Halifax interviewed Dr. Forbes on the need for a national seniors strategy. You can watch the interview by clicking the following link. (Starts at 6min 30 sec – English only)
