Combining the Geriatric Services and Leadership in LTC conferences.

20 years of knowledge translation for interdisciplinary teams, including physicians and other health care leaders.

Aging Matters, April 21 and 22, 2023
Simon Fraser University, Harbour Centre

The learning community brings together leaders in geriatrics, gerontology and care for persons living with dementia including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers and other members of interdisciplinary teams. Participants come from long-term, acute and community care, and are informed by researchers, ethicists and legal experts. This year, we look forward to connecting both in person and online.


Last year, we discussed the huge impact of COVID-19 on seniors, their family members and care staff, and the  “clarion calls” for a change in perspectives, planning and decision making. Join colleagues and an expert faculty as we discuss research, initiatives, and policy changes including aging in the ‘right’ place. 


The two day program includes plenary sessions and options for concurrent sessions that provide opportunities to build broader expertise and interdisciplinary connections on Aging and LTC. 


The powerful theme of personal stories will be braided through the program. We will share narratives that underpin dignity and respect and guide person-centred care.

The planning committee is excited to share “Program Highlights” for the 2023 conference.  This year we welcome a wide range of expert practitioners, researchers and academics who will share recent elder-care innovations, initiatives and new clinical guidelines from across Canada.
