WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? OLDER ADULTS' PERSPECTIVES ON CARE OPTIONS IN A POST COVID ERA
The purpose of this study is to understand how older Canadians and their caregivers have changed their perceptions of care options in later life, including long-term care and home and community care.
TRANSFORMING PRIMARY CARE FOR OLDER CANADIANS LIVING WITH FRAILTY
A CANADIAN FRAILTY NETWORK TRANSFORMATIVE TEAM GRANT
This project investigates how our proposed model to improve health, social, and economic outcomes for older adults living with frailty compares to usual care in primary care settings. With support from CFN, researchers, collaborators, healthcare providers, and older adults, across Canada, we work to transform primary care for frail older Canadians.
EXPLORING THE CARE NEEDS OF CANADIANS LIVING WITH FRAILTY AND THE ROLE OF PRIMARY CARE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Through this project, we are exploring the health care experiences of frail older adults, caregivers, and their healthcare providers and administrators. We are also capturing major policy changes and media commentary at the national, provincial, and local levels to understand the background of health system changes during the pandemic.
INTEGRATED KNOWLEDGE TRANSLATION: UNDERSTANDING THE IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS OF A MODEL OF INTEGRATED CARE FOR OLDER ADULTS
This project aims to understand, through observation and interviewing, the co-design and implementation process used to develop an integrated model of care for older adults with frailty. Older adults, family caregivers, health care providers, and other stakeholders will work together to co-design an integrated model of geriatric care. System improvements may include: early assessment and identification of frailty, disease management, access to specialists, and enhanced coordination across multiple health care providers.
InfoRehab was a CIHR-funded program of research that worked to improve the understanding and use of health information for rehabilitation clients. The work done with this project continues to impact the field by making clear the potential of information systems in other parts of the health system.
