Older adults are the fastest growing group in the Alberta population. Within 20 years, one in five Albertans will be 65 years of age or older. Given our aging population, seniors’ health is an important issue for the healthcare system and Albertans. Seniors’ health covers a wide breadth of topics, and research studies contribute to our knowledge of health, illness, and disability. However, what we don’t yet know is what matters most to knowledge users and how those topics across seniors’ health might weigh against one another for priority-setting.
You are invited to participate in this survey to identify the questions about seniors’ health that are important to you. You are invited to take part if you are:
- An older adult (65 years of age and over)
- A caregiver of an older adult (spouse, family member, friend, neighbour)
- A clinician or health/social care provider (doctor, nurse; care aides, allied health provider, pharmacist, social worker) working with older adults
- Someone who lives or works in the province of Alberta
The findings of this survey will set the foundation for future strategic planning related to the research supported and led by the Seniors Health SCN. Please take part by clicking the link below. Thank you!
