Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is Canada’s sole network devoted to improving care for older Canadians living with frailty and supporting their families and caregivers. We do this by increasing frailty recognition and assessment, increasing evidence for decision-making, advancing evidence-based changes to care, training the next generation of care professionals and scientists, catalyzing change in Canada’s health and social care systems, and always engaging with older adults and their families and caregivers.
Frailty today is as important as Medicare was in the 1960 – a topic central to healthcare in Canada.
