Canadian Frailty Network 2018 National Conference

Canadian Frailty Network 2018 National Conference


September 20 – September 21, 2018
Toronto, Ontario

Frailty matters. 1.2 million Canadians 65-plus live with frailty as do 2.5 million Canadians who are their caregivers and hundreds of thousands more in our healthcare workforce. Canadians 65-plus account for nearly half of Canada’s healthcare spending (almost $100 billion), but only 15 percent of the population.

This conference is for practitioners, care providers, scientists, clinicians, policy makers and experts in the field of frailty.  Together we will present and discuss, the latest knowledge, evidence, approaches and policies that are transforming care and seeding the next generation of breakthrough innovations.

CFN is Canada’s only national network dedicated to older Canadians living with frailty and all responsible for their well-being. The Network has funded and catalyzed new research, knowledge, practice, education and training across the full continuum of care. This conference is a unique opportunity to examine frailty from many aspects/perspectives at a single event.

NEW THIS YEAR: CFN FRAILTY MATTERS Innovation Showcase
A centrepiece of the 2018 CFN National Conference, the FRAILTY MATTERS Innovation Showcase will spotlight the best emerging or existing innovative approaches to improving the lives of older Canadians living with frailty and all responsible for their care. The CFN FRAILTY MATTERS Innovation Showcase is presented in partnership with the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research — Institute for Aging (CIHR-IA).
