As former Director of the Geriatrics Health Systems Research Group (GHS), our research focused on strategies to improve the effectiveness of geriatric health services and systems. Areas of research interest included challenges experienced by older patients as they transition across care settings, strategies that can foster greater care coordination and health system integration, and patient and citizen engagement in decision-making.
