Better Health Care for Frail Elderly Canadians

Canada’s population is aging quickly. Today, many Canadians are living longer and healthier into their later years. But as the number of seniors grows, so does the number of frail elderly people with more complex health challenges and care needs.

TVN is Canada’s exclusive network for the frail elderly. Funded by the Government of Canada through the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE), we facilitate evidence-based research, knowledge sharing and clinical practices that improve healthcare outcomes for frail elderly Canadians, their families and caregivers. TVN takes a collaborative and patient-first approach – with our industry, academic, care-provider and patient-advocate partners, we lead Canadian research, knowledge mobilization and training focused on the urgent care needs of this vulnerable population.

The 2015 TVN Forum in Toronto, Ontario focused on the transformational change necessary to make evidenced-based improvements in the care of frail elderly Canadians. This event brought together health care, government, university and industry leaders and researchers, and included national and international expert speakers and panelists who described successes and challenges in implementing frailty assessment tools for the care of the frail elderly patients.
