Hello brainXchange Members,
We are excited to share with you some updates and knowledge exchange opportunities:

Young Carers Project

The Young Carers Project is a community collaborative working together with young carers in Waterloo, Ontario to educate the public about the existence and needs of young carers. A young carer is anyone who is living with a family member with an exceptional need. This can be short-term or long-term and include an illness, disability, mental health issue, addiction, language or cultural barrier, or other unique situation.

The Young Carers Project, in partnership with the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP), has engaged in a research project to identify the needs of young carers. The resources developed from this research include a By Us For Us© guide, documentary film, and website. Through the dissemination of these resources, we hope to help young carers meet their needs and manage in their roles, help service providers understand how they can support young carers, and share resources internationally.The brainXchange will host an online event on this project on April 8th, please stay tuned for more information.
 

The Behavioural Supports Ontario Experience: Lessons Learned and Keys to Success

The Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) project is a province-wide, regionally implemented, evidence-informed change strategy that utilizes quality improvement principles and knowledge translation best practices as critical enablers. A paper titled 'Health Care Redesign for Responsive Behaviours—The Behavioural Supports Ontario Experience: Lessons Learned and Keys to Success' was recently published, it describes the project and key lessons learned in the implementation of this initiative that can be applied to other jurisdictions wishing to enable large-scale system redesign and sustainable system change. Access the paper.
