A CANADIAN FRAILTY NETWORK GRANT
Through this project, funded by the Canadian Frailty Network, we examined how to engage older adults in healthcare research, decision-making, and planning. This led to the creation of the Choosing Healthcare Operation by Involving Canada's Elderly (CHOICE) framework for the engagement of older adults in healthcare.
DEVELOPING STRATEGIES AND RESOURCES TO SUPPORT PATIENT AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT WITH RACIALIZED IMMIGRANT OLDER ADULTS
Through this project, we investigate how racialized immigrant older adults (RIOAs) are taking a role in their own healthcare, from the perspective of care providers, older adults, and family caregivers. We seek to develop a suite of tools aimed at improving patient engagement with RIOAs and their families.
DEVELOPING AN IN-DEPTH UNDERSTANDING OF PATIENT AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT ACROSS CARE TRANSITIONS
With funding from the CIHR, we are investigating how older adults and their family caregivers are engaged in care planning and goal-setting as they transition through the heal;th care system. Often older adults have more than one chronic condition and require care from multiple providers across multiple settings.
