CanAge CEO Laura Tamblyn Watts has been appointed to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group)’s Technical Subcommittee on Long-Term Care Homes, which will lead the development work on CSA Z8004, Operation and infection prevention and control of long-term care homes.

This prestigious appointment will give us the opportunity to guide the future of long-term care in Canada, specifically in the areas of safe operating practices and infection prevention and control (based on recommendations made in our policy platform, VOICES: A Roadmap to an Age-Inclusive Canada under I for Infection Prevention and Disaster Response).

As a member of this forward-thinking committee, we have a powerful platform to represent our members and older Canadians across the country, helping to ensure we never see another disaster like the one witnessed over the last year.

We’ll provide updates on this work as it happens.
