The Canadian Frailty Priority Setting Partnership wants to know where you think we need research related to care, support and treatment for older adults who are frail.

The study is being funded by the Canadian Frailty Network, who will make the final results public and use the results to inform their research funding program.

The study follows the methods of the James Lind Alliance (UK) . It is being led by Drs. Katherine McGilton (Senior Scientist, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute – University Health Network), Jennifer Bethell (Postdoctoral Researcher, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute - University Health Network) and Martine Puts (Assistant Professor, Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, University of Toronto) and overseen by a Steering Group that includes people affected by frailty, either personally or professionally.

This is an opportunity for you to have your say in setting Canadian frailty research priorities.
