Canada's most significant portfolio of knowledge on frailty

Improving evidence through research and KT

CFN funds research and knowledge translation projects that demonstrate potential for widespread adoption of frailty screening and transforming clinical practices involving care for older adults living with frailty.

Building on the strong base of research funded by CIHR, NSERC, and SSHRC, CFN-supported  teams engage patients, families and knowledge users, and involve trainees directly in the research. Investigators also seek support from external partners to accelerate the adoption and implementation of project results.

Our research portfolio

CFN has funded 102 research and KT projects and directed services contracts through 19 competitions across eight types of programs.

How our research program is managed

Under the direction of CFN Scientific Director and CEO, Dr. John Muscedere, the CFN Research Management Committee guides, manages and monitors the research program. Committee members reflect the pan-Canadian, multi-sectorial and multidisciplinary nature of our research mandate.

A CFN Scientific Review Committee ensures scientific excellence through a robust peer review process, and the CFN Knowledge Translation Committee ensures that promising research reflects CFN’s knowledge translation and citizen engagement priorities.
