Current Projects on Improving Older Immigrants' Health in Canada
Developing a comprehensive understanding of elder abuse prevention
The purpose of this multidisciplinary study is to develop a comprehensive classification of risk factors for elder abuse in immigrant communities and to identify the most appropriate and culturally relevant strategies to address the risk factors in immigrant communities in Canada.
Inclusive Communities for Older Immigrants (ICOI)
The Inclusive Communities for Older Immigrants (ICOI) partnership will engage in a 7-year multidisciplinary, multi-sector, multi-province project that will build sustainable connections to generate knowledge about social isolation and connectedness among older immigrants, support multidirectional knowledge exchange, and improve older immigrants’ lives.
