Welcome to CFN’s Media Room

Canadian Frailty Network is Canada’s 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. CFN embraces a collaborative and patient-first approach – with our industry, academic, care-provider and patient-advocate partners, we lead Canadian research, knowledge mobilization and next-generation training focused on the urgent care needs of this vulnerable population.
