The CFN led Frailty Outcomes Consensus (FOCUS) Project is looking for your input!
The Frailty Outcomes Consensus (FOCUS) Project
To date, the FOCUS project has included the completion of a systematic review of frailty outcomes in the published literature. We have also surveyed persons living with frailty and their family/friend caregivers, both living in the community as well as long term care, to ensure we are including outcomes important to persons living with frailty and their caregivers in our consensus process.
Based on this preliminary work, we have identified several COMs and CDEs that will be voted on through a Delphi consensus process. We would greatly appreciate your participation in identifying any further COMs and CDEs that may not have been identified through our preliminary work.

This webinar will discuss the vascular system in the brain and present new research findings that maintaining good cardiovascular health may be an important strategy to delay the onset of dementia or slow its progression.
Get a team together on June 11, 2019, for the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Virtual Expedition, New Strategies for Preventing Falls and gain new strategies to prevent patients falls across care settings. This five-session virtual training will highlight a variety of evidence-based approaches you can implement and test during the course.
The Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research Canadian Data Platform (SPOR CDP) is a pan-Canadian initiative involving researchers and policy makers from every province and most territories in Canada, led by Dr. Kimberlyn McGrail from University of British Columbia and BC SPOR SUPPORT Unit. The SPOR CDP was initially proposed in 2014 and funded in 2018 ($39 million over 7 years) by CIHR with matching funds from other jurisdictions.This SPOR CDP will enhance Canada’s capacity to analyze routinely collected government data in cross-jurisdictional research by leveraging strong existing national capacity and new advances in analytic techniques. The model allows data to remain within each jurisdiction while being analyzed as if it were centrally located. All local access requirements and approval processes are respected and data never leave existing provincial or territorial boundaries. This advance opens up vast new opportunities to conduct large national and multi-jurisdictional epidemiological studies in Canada, and allows the opportunity to conduct natural experiments which take advantage of the diversity of policy and program implementation strategies that exist across the country. Related objectives will focus on enhancing and harmonizing the availability of government research data across provinces and territories, and streamlining access and approval processes.
The goal is to help those who produce, apply and broker knowledge to build their KT skills to increase the use of research evidence in practice, policy, and further research.
DEADLINE: Various, depending on project
The TRANS-SENIOR research programme aims to: 1) generate evidence on when and where avoiding care transitions is possible, 2) generate evidence for the benefits of innovative transitional care models, and 3) generate evidence for methods for actively involving senior citizens and informal caregivers in care innovation, and inform future sustainable implementation of interventions that avoid or improve care transitions.
TRANS-SENIOR is in the process of recruiting 13 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs, also referred to as PhD students). Each will work at a beneficiary institution with a 36-months contract, and will work towards a joint or double degree at two universities within the TRANS-SENIOR network. Each ESR will receive additional training and undergo secondments at academic and/or non-academic partner organisations within the network.
