Two new publications summarize the state of knowledge on caregiving in Canada, place it in an international comparative context and propose key principles for redistributing responsibility for care, along with proposals for further research.

A Healthy Balance: Caregiving Policy in Canada, a background report, and A Healthy Balance: A Summary Report on a National Roundtable on Caregiving Policy in Canada, were prepared by CPRN's Family Network in collaboration with the Healthy Balance Research Program [funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research and jointly led by the Atlantic Centre of Excellence for Women's Health, the Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women, and the Institute of Population Health at the University of Ottawa].
