The Future of Frailty in Canadian Health Care System - John Muscedere, MD, FRCPC
There are over 1 million Canadians living with frailty and this is expected to double within the next 10 years. The healthcare system will need to increasingly recognize and redesign to improve outcomes in this highly vulnerable group of older Canadians. The future of frailty in Canada includes its systemic recognition, targeted interventional research designed to increase the availability of actionable evidence, increased availability of practice guidelines for frailty and imbedded publically reported quality indicators.
Dr. Muscedere is an accomplished critical care researcher whose primary research interests include nosocomial infections, clinical practice guidelines, knowledge translation and critical care outcomes.
He has a keen interest in the design of healthcare systems to optimize patient centered outcomes and has participated in the redesign of the Ontario provincial critical care system including serving as the regional critical care lead for the South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) for 10 years.
