A McGill-led project was among the two funded under the inaugural call for the Technology Evaluation in the Elderly Network’s (TVN) Strategic Impact Grant Program. The funded projects are collaborative by design, requiring that researchers work together with other like-minded researchers with projects in similar areas to achieve greater impact. Strategic Impact Grants are awarded to four to six projects annually for up to 24 months, to a maximum of $300,000 per year. Tamara Sussman of the McGill School of Social Work will partner with Project Leader Sharon Kaasalainen of McMaster University on the project, Improving Palliative Care in Long Term Care Homes Using Participatory Action Research. The proposed study promises to address the need for new approaches to palliative care in long-term care homes for frail older adults. McGill is a Network Member Institution of TVN.
