Supporting Quality of Life Assessments of Frail Older Adults and Their Family Caregivers 12:00 pm
Supporting Quality of Life Assessments of Frail Older Adults and Their Family Caregivers @ Online
Jan 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Older adults living at home facing frailty and chronic illness, and their family caregivers, often experience challenges affecting their quality of life. Their priorities must be addressed by healthcare providers. Unfortunately, these are easily overlooked in the “hustle and bustle” of care. Tools for assessing quality of life make the priorities of patients and family caregivers visible to healthcare providers and leaders. The goal of the Canadian Frailty Network is to develop resources to support the use of quality of life assessment tools. The Network will meet with each group to identify their needs and the types of resources that would be helpful to them. Working with each group, they will develop customized resources that include education materials (for in person and self-guided learning), videos, and communication tools. These materials will be made freely available via an existing online person centred health information system, called the Quality of Life and Practice Support System (QPSS). The QPSS allows patients and family caregivers to complete quality of life assessment tools and share their information with healthcare providers. This project will help put the voices of older adults living with frailty, and of their family caregivers, at the centre of healthcare. This goal unites patients, families, clinicians, and healthcare and government leaders in the pursuit of a Canadian healthcare system that meets the needs of all Canadians. This webinar is hosted by the Canadian Frailty Network.

Climate Change, Vulnerability and Health Equity in Canada: Understanding Linkages to Inform Adaptation 12:00 pm
Climate Change, Vulnerability and Health Equity in Canada: Understanding Linkages to Inform Adaptation @ Online
Jan 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Current emissions of greenhouse gases put the world on track for warming of more than 2 degrees Celsius, a level that increases the risk of potentially severe climate change impacts on health. Climate change is increasing risks to the health of Canadians, but not all populations and communities will be affected by climate change equally. Existing health inequities are exacerbated by climate change impacts and adaptations may inadvertently perpetuate inequities if broader social, political and economic factors are not considered. Information on the health risks to Canadians from climate change and a new framework for understanding intersecting vulnerabilities that is being developed for the next national climate change and health assessment will be discussed in this presentation. This webinar is hosted by the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program.

Designers of the Future: Application of Dementia-Friendly Design Principles 12:00 pm
Designers of the Future: Application of Dementia-Friendly Design Principles @ Online
Jan 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Short summary of the presentations: In the fall of 2018, the Ryerson School of Interior Design 3rd year studio students were tasked with creating a conceptual redesign of the Alzheimer Society of Ontario’s (ASO) offices. During the development of the conceptual redesign, students met with the ASO and received a tour of the ASO’s and Alzheimer Society of Toronto’s facilities. Students were tasked with creating a new office interior design for staff and spaces for client and community programs. These two student presentations are notable due to how principles of dementia-friendly design were used in these projects. This studio emphasized the importance for future designers that universal accessibility needs to accommodate those with physical and cognitive disabilities. This webinar is hosted by brainXchange.
