Advocacy for Ageing and Disability in Canadian Society
Students explore the concepts of ageing, disability, caring and activism. Societal and political determinants of well-being and full citizenship are examined along with different strategies of advocacy. Consideration is given to contemporary challenges for individuals, family and communities as they engage in caregiving activities as well as advocacy roles in relation to health and social service agencies and public policy systems and social programs in the Canadian context.
