These areas of research examine issues and approaches from a broader perspective, incorporating many aspects that impact the life of the child, the experience of the caregivers, and the service of health care providers. CanChild also focuses on themes that bring children and their families together with researchers, where a mutually beneficial relationship can be fostered through engagement and making research accessible.
