CFN, In partnership with the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research — Institute of Aging (CIHR-IA) held a nation-wide competition and received 79 submission from every province and territory, representing nearly every conceivable facet of frailty care.
Canada is a nation of 13 healthcare systems and great local/regional innovations in these systems all-too-often don’t get shared on a national stage. CFN created the FRAILTY MATTERS Innovation Showcase to put the spotlight on Canada’s best. Recognizing these innovations is just part of the formula – our goal is to start conversations, breed new thinking and approaches to frailty across Canada’s health systems. Canada needs to talk about frailty and older adults. Join the conversation on September 20th.
At the FRAILTY MATTERS Innovation Showcase in Toronto on September 20th you’ll have a chance to learn about the Top 30 Frailty Innovations. The Top 5 Frailty Innovations will present their projects and FRAILTY INNOVATION OF THE YEAR will be announced.
