Enhancing Shared Care of Frail Seniors
The GiiC initiative is a collaboration of the Regional Geriatric Programs of Ontario located in Hamilton, Kingston, London, Ottawa and Toronto, the Centre for Education and Research on Aging and Health (CERAH) at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and the North East Specialized Geriatric Services (NESGS) Group in Sudbury. CERAH and the NESGS Interest Group are affiliated with the Northern Ontario School of Medicine.
The GiiC Project is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care through a HealthForceOntario, Interprofessional Care Education Fund and supports the Provincial Interprofessional Care Blueprint for Action. The willingness of Family Health Teams and Community Health Centres across the province to join our initiative is gratefully acknowledged as is the support of the Quality Improvement & Innovation Partnership, the Association for Ontario Health Centers and the Arthritis Community Research and Evaluation Unit
