"Top Ten" Canadian research frailty priorities
Coming soon ... RFP for frailty implementation/intervention projects
CFN will soon be issuing a Request for Proposals for implementation or intervention projects focused on the “top ten” Canadian frailty research priorities generated by the Canadian Frailty Priority Setting Partnership group.
The purpose of the Canadian Frailty Priority Setting Partnership was to identify the research priorities of older Canadians living with frailty, and then to share those priorities with researchers and research funding organisations so that more research is conducted in these areas.
To do this, the Canadian Frailty Priority Setting Partnership followed the methods of the James Lind Alliance. It asked Canadians affected by older adults living with frailty – either personally, as a family member or caregiver, or through their work – for their unanswered questions about living with frailty, and care, support and treatment for older adults living with frailty. The responses were then prioritized through a two-stage process.
This competition will use the results from the Canadian Frailty Priority Setting Partnership to help bring the voices of Canadians living with frailty into the research agenda. These priorities will also be shared with researchers and research funding organizations in hopes of stimulating more research in these areas.
