The Centre of Excellence on Longevity for the McGill RUIS has initiated and put in place a partnership with the Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) of Toronto. This unique and synergetic partnership, the only one of its kind in Quebec, has assembled provincial university research centres on aging to finance elder care innovations for Quebec.
This exceptional Quebec Research-Clinician Partnership Program (QRCP2) has as its mission to support new and exciting initiatives on the themes of aging at home, family caregiving, mental health, care continuum, and the needs of aboriginal and rural populations.
In the context of the QRCP2, the CABHI has helped finance projects concerning the transformation of research into products, services and new practices responding to the needs and challenges we all face with the increase of longevity in Quebec.
At the end of this call for tenders, two projects were chosen for financing by the CABHI. They will soon be announced.
