Older Adults Health and Wellbeing:
Research Perspectives and Future Directions at the University of Calgary,
Lorraine Venturato, PhD.,
This Interactive workshop will provide an overview of current research trends in aging and the health of seniors from an international, provincial, and local perspective, with particular focus on emerging areas of interest at the University of Calgary.
It is hoped that this workshop will provide feedback and strategic direction for research in this area and engage interested members in developing potential collaborative linkages with researchers at the U. of C.
Lorraine Venturato is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Nursing and Chair of Gerontological Studies at the University of Calgary. She is also an Adjunct Associate Professor at Griffith University in Australia and has research projects in both Australia and Canada. She has wide experience in caring for older people, with a particular focus on community and long-term care services. She is also engaged in action research and practice development in long-term care settings, and has funded projects that aim to bridge the gap between education, research and practice in the care of older people. Her clinical research focuses on quality of life, quality of care and models of care for people living with dementia.
