This chapter presents a report on the six guiding principles that are derived from the information shared by project personnel. These are raising awareness of caregiver issues, encouraging caregiver leadership, acknowledging caregivers as partners in care, building community capacity, networking to engage and maintain the interest of key stakeholders, and developing advisory steering committee structures. It also studies the implementation of ‘respite as an outcome, not a service’ in three rural regions of Canada, using the point of view of the project personnel who were working within formal organisational structures.
