Watch the recording from our May 2019 ‘Top Ten‘ webinar: Top Ten insights on enhancing equitable access to assistive technologies.

As the proportion of older adults in the population continues to grow in Canada, assistive technologies will play an increasingly important role in promoting active and healthy aging, independent living and aging-in-place, particularly in the home and community care sector. Rosalie Wang (Assistant Professor, Dept. of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy, University of Toronto), Trisha Robbins (Manager of the Assistive Devices Program, March of Dimes Canada) and Michael Wilson (Assistant Director, McMaster Health Forum) addressed some of the challenges in enhancing equitable access to assistive technologies, highlighted why addressing these should be a priority, and shared insights from their experiences.

Webinars in this series feature top ten insights into health- and social-systems, evidence-informed policymaking and a range of key health and social issues, from Forum experts and influential policymakers, stakeholders and researchers from around the world.
