Caregivers are aware there are significant gaps in our healthcare system, yet some of the answers to these gaps are found in supporting and providing education to the healthcare workers on the front lines. It was not until recently that Dr. Jasneet Parmar and her team sought to change the landscape of caregivers in healthcare and began to create and distribute peer-reviewed, validated trainings for care providers to change the engagement between the healthcare team and caregivers on the frontlines. These trainings and further education, research and her own work as a physician are truly shifting how the system works with caregivers at the forefront.
