The Butterfly Model for long-term residential care has received a great deal of attention recently, especially in the Toronto media.

Based on 10 years of international, interdisciplinary research and on a recent study conducted for the City of Toronto, this webinar will consider the central principles in popular models for care, the evidence that supports them and recommendations related to them.
