Improving Frailty Care Benefits Everyone

The Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) 2018 National Conference

Date: Thursday September 20 – Friday September 21, 2018

Location: Hilton Toronto, 145 Richmond Street West, Toronto ON

Frailty matters. 1.2 million Canadians 65-plus live with frailty as do 2.5 million Canadians who are their caregivers and hundreds of thousands more in our healthcare workforce. Canadians 65-plus account for nearly half of Canada’s healthcare spending (almost $100 billion), but only 15 percent of the population.

This conference is for practitioners, care providers, scientists, clinicians, policy makers and experts in the field of frailty.  Together we will present and discuss, the latest knowledge, evidence, approaches and policies that are transforming care and seeding the next generation of breakthrough innovations.

CFN is Canada’s only national network dedicated to older Canadians living with frailty and all responsible for their well-being. The Network has funded and catalyzed new research, knowledge, practice, education and training across the full continuum of care. This conference is a unique opportunity to examine frailty from many aspects/perspectives at a single event.


Every Canadian is touched by frailty.
