KFL&A Regional Centre for Healthy Aging Ancillary Studies Competition Requests for Proposals

DEADLINE for LOI 3 October, 14:00 MT
The Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is looking to fund high-quality research, knowledge translation and implementation of innovation in practice studies on healthy aging carried out in the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington (KFL&A) region. This competition is designed to support ancillary studies on older adults aged 65y+ residing in the KFL&A region who are participants in CFN’s AVOID Frailty Program via the KFL&A Centre for Healthy Aging (https://healthyagingcentres.ca). AVOID Frailty is a community-driven primary prevention intervention that aims to enable uptake and maintenance of healthy behaviours for older adults.

The central activity of the KFL&A Centre for Healthy Aging is implementation of the AVOID Frailty Program, which operationalizes each of the five AVOID Frailty (www.AVOIDfrailty.ca) components together as a complex public health primary prevention intervention. The KFL&A Centre for Healthy Aging will engage and empower people in KFL&A communities by creating an enabling environment for behaviour change that includes co-ordinated assistance for older adults to identify, navigate, and access local community and social services.
