Ontarians still skeptical of flu shot

Half of all people who avoid the flu shot do so because they question its importance and effectiveness, a new study from the University of Waterloo reports.

The study reviewed Ontario health data from 2013/14, where only 34 per cent of people went to get the seasonal flu shot despite universal coverage in the province.

Researchers will transform health-care services for persons living with frailty

Researchers at the University of Waterloo will work to strengthen health care for older Canadians living with frailty with a new $2.6-million grant from the Canadian Frailty Network.

The money will fund a project that will give primary health-care providers in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta access to efficient screening tools to quickly identify patients who may be at risk for frailty. It will also give health-care providers access to an online platform to initiate referrals and co-ordinate care with other providers.
