The GERAS Centre is focused on providing exemplary care in geriatrics through a rapid learning health system approach, which acknowledges the fundamental linkage between research, practice, and education, and uses evidence-based strategies to provide successful point-of-care improvements. Research and education is focused in three overarching themes: Frailty, Falls & Fractures, Dementia & Delirium, and End of Life Care.
The core themes serve as the platform for the GERAS Centre’s strategic directives:
Research - Improve quality of living for seniors with chronic diseases through innovative research.
Interprofessional Education – Advance interprofessional education for leaners and health professionals in the care of seniors and their families.
Seniors and Families – Develop and evaluate educational health promotion strategies that enhance quality of life, function and independence for seniors and their families.
