Speakers from the research, media, and community sectors will gather to discuss the current state of conditions in long-term care in Quebec. This examination will delve into the causes, contributing factors, and systemic issues that lead to situations of mistreatment. Additionally, the panelists will discuss what strategies could lead to lasting change within long-term care facilities.

Panelists include Mélanie Couture, Associate Professor at the École de travail social of the Université de Sherbrooke, Aaron Derfel, a health journalist at the Montreal Gazette, as well as independent documentary filmmaker Helene Klodawsky. The panel will commence with a short theater scene performed by the activist group RECAA (Respecting Elders: Communities Against Abuse).
