Newspapers and the Internet cover lots of stories about health care for the aging Canadian,
but the emphasis is usually on drama (dramatic findings from a new study, dramatic events
with no mention of related scientific research), with less emphasis on substance.
Readers are left to wonder which information to trust.
The Canadian Association of Retired Teachers (ACER-CART) supports the McMaster University Optimal Aging Portal which features quality scientific evidence about healthy aging information that can help Canadians remain healthy, active and engaged and to manage their health conditions.
The Portal evaluates health research and resources, telling users whether free health resources on the Internet and in newspaper stories are based on scientific research, are reliable, and are worthy of note.
Users can register for free at: McMasters Optimal Aging Portal and gain easy access to search the full content of the Portal.
April 16th is National Advance Care Planning Day, a day to promote conversations about your wishes and values for your future health care.
Advance Care Planning or ACP is a process that helps people prepare for future health care decisions and to choose decision makers in the event they are unable to speak for themselves.
The RTO has been partnering with the Nova Scotia Hospice Palliative Care Association to help people and their families prepare for a serious illness through advance care planning education. For more information on Advance Care Planning you can contact Advance Care Planning or The Nova Scotia Hospice Palliative Care Association
The Retired Teachers Organization and the Nova Scotia Hospice Palliative Care Association jointly provide leadership for the planning to our membership and community.
If your RTO Branch is interested in conducting an Advance Care Planning Workshop, please contact your Branch President or Alyson Hillier at firstname.lastname@example.org
