Transforming Health and Social Services for the Aged in Canada

Abstract: In Canada there are a number of health and social services that are offered to people aged sixty and over which do not function collaboratively. Collectively, such services are said to not effectively contribute towards a learning health system (LHS). This talk, which will draw from such disciplines as Health Sociology and existing fragmented services, will consider how a learning health system may better transpire.

Transforming Health and Social Services for the Aged via a Learning Health System

Abstract: In Canada there are a number of health and social services that are offered to vulnerable populations such as the aged which do not function collaboratively. Many would argue that such services and related organizations require improved integration. This brief talk, which will draw ideas from such disciplines as Health Sociology and Public Health, will consider factors needed for an alternative, namely, the development of a learning health system (LHS).
