Collaborative for Health and Aging


The McMaster Collaborative for Health and Aging strengthens Ontario’s capacity in patient-oriented research and improves health system performance and older adult and caregivers’ experiences by advancing the science, and practice, of engagement in health research and decision-making with a focus on aging. 

By addressing the unique needs of older adults and their caregivers through resources, consultation supports, data access, and technical services, the Collaborative will position Ontario as a leader in patient-oriented research in aging. 

The Collaborative is a part of the Ontario SPOR SUPPORT Unit (OSSU)’s network of 14 health research centres across the province that provides scientific knowledge and supports high-quality patient-partnered research with the goal of improving health and the health system.
