Collaborative for Health and Aging

Consultation and Support

The McMaster Collaborative for Health and Aging is committed to facilitating meaningful partnerships and providing support among our members and partners across Ontario to strengthen evidence-based patient-oriented point-of-care. By addressing the unique needs of older adults and their caregivers through providing resources, consultation supports, access and use of secondary data for healthy aging, and technical services, the Collaborative will position Ontario as a leader in patient-oriented research in aging.
