Initial funding from CFN has led to many researchers securing larger follow-on application-based research funding from various federal and provincial funding agencies as well as from private not-for-profit groups. Relatively small amounts of CFN funding has led to a multiplier effect (as high as 16-fold leverage) allowing Network Investigators to continue to move key CFN research projects closer to real-world implementation.
Canadian Frailty Network funded a study by Drs. Todd Lee and Emily McDonald of McGill University Health Centre. The investigators created MedSafer, an electronic application, to identify deprescribing opportunities for older patients (aged 65 and older) when hospitalized.
