Description

The Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is looking to fund high-quality research, knowledge translation and implementation of innovation in practice studies on healthy aging carried out in the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington (KFL&A) region. This competition is designed to support ancillary studies on older adults aged 65y+ residing in the KFL&A region who are participants in CFN’s AVOID Frailty Program via the KFL&A Centre for Healthy Aging (https://healthyagingcentres.ca). AVOID Frailty is a community-driven primary prevention intervention that aims to enable uptake and maintenance of healthy behaviours for older adults.

Driven by a holistic view of health, the AVOID Frailty Program for Healthy Aging provides the knowledge, tools, support, and opportunities to prevent, mitigate and/or delay the onset or worsening of frailty. Together with diverse partner organizations within the KFLA region, the KFLA Centre for Healthy Aging aims to harness and enrich communities with opportunities for ongoing age-friendly research, knowledge translation, and implementation of innovation.

Eligibility

  • Have at least one Principal Investigator (PI) from or affiliated with a Tri-Council eligible host institution located in the KFLA region.
  • Include Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) trainees who will be directly involved in a meaningful way in the study. HQP can be part-time or full-time graduate/doctoral/post-doctoral or undergraduate students, residents, fellows or working professionals.  Note that meaningful involvement in the study components of a project includes activities such as data collection, data synthesis, report writing, etc., but would exclude tasks that are more related to administration and/or coordination (e.g., data entry, meeting scheduling, minute taking, completion and distribution of paperwork, etc.).
