Cathy Fooks, President & CEO
I am pleased to announce that Jodeme Goldhar, The Change Foundation’s Executive Lead of Strategy and Innovation, has been named a Senior Associate of the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC).
IFIC’s mission is to develop an international network that crosses organizational and professional boundaries to advance the science, knowledge and adoption of integrated care policy and practice. They do this through the development and exchange of ideas, and we are pleased to add our voice to this chorus.
In this role, Jodeme will seek to support and grow the work of both IFIC, and The Change Foundation, internationally.
In particular, Jodeme will be working with IFIC to advance the exchange of knowledge, information and practice to improve the caregiver experience globally, and to facilitate collaboration between Ontario, Canada and IFIC. Her role will be to advance integration by building and co-developing new lines of work related to a focus on patients and caregivers as partners with health service providers.
Through direct engagement with caregivers and health care providers, the Foundation has designed a program of work that we believe will improve the caregiver experience in Ontario and support health care organizations in working with the families of the patients they serve. Through our partnership with IFIC, The Foundation can serve as a model for others. Just as importantly, we will use this opportunity to learn from others and bring fresh ideas home with us. It’s by joining this type of international community that we’re able to keep learning and growing.
