How improving healthcare for the frail elderly can also cut costs

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chad Hipolito

Medical frailty already affects over one million Canadians.  It can be expensive and upsetting for frail people and their loved ones.

Dr. John Muscedere explains how Canada’s healthcare system can better support frail people, who are typically elderly and more vulnerable.

Find out how better healthcare for people who are medically frail also improves care for people who are younger and have more resilience.

John Muscedere is the Scientific Director and CEO of the Canadian Frailty Network (CFN), a not-for-profit organization funded in 2012 by the Government of Canada’s Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) program.
