Listening to our Elders

Older Canadians living with frailty tell us what they need to live better

Within a decade, the number of frail, elderly Canadians will double.  What does getting old look like in Canada?

We need to start listening to the people with lived experiences of frailty and aging in planning and providing care, say Dr. Kathy McGilton and Dr. John Muscedere.  Here’s how it will improve our health system and the health of patients.

A podcast in partnership with the Canadian Frailty Network

Katherine McGilton is a Senior Scientist at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute-UHN, a Professor in the Lawrence S Bloomberg, Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto and a Network Investigator with Canadian Frailty Network.

John Muscedere is the Scientific Director and CEO of the Canadian Frailty Network (CFN). He’s also an Expert Advisor with EvidenceNetwork.ca, Professor of Critical Care Medicine at Queen’s University and an intensivist at Kingston General Hospital.
