The McMaster University Optimal Aging Portal offers direct and easy access to evidence-based information about how to stay healthy, active and engaged, and how to manage our health conditions, as we grow older.
The Portal aims to be a trusted voice on optimal aging for citizens, clinicians, public health professionals and policymakers.
The Seniors Health Knowledge Network (SHKN)’s goal is to improve quality of life for Ontario’s seniors and caregivers. This is achieved through sharing evidence-based care practices within all seniors’ health care venues, particularly among long-term and community care staff; and through informing policy development for service providers, care settings, and knowledge users.
We've facilitated knowledge sharing on topics related to Ontario’s seniors health care since 2005. SHKN includes individuals, organizations, care providers, practitioners, educators, students, researchers and policy makers who connect and collaborate across settings and disciplines to develop, evaluate and share knowledge to inform better client and caregiver outcomes.
