Bruyère @ Applied Research Day (Ontario Long Term Care Association)

Posted Date: May 13, 2014 Posted By: Alexei Kintero


Each year, the Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA), in collaboration with a number of other stakeholders and sponsors, presents an Applied Research Education Day, which covers a broad spectrum of elder care – long term care, community care, home care and seniors care. This information-packed day promotes research utilization and innovation in long term care, profiles new and emerging research, and provides a forum for learning, networking and information sharing. This year’s event took place on February 25th – 26th, 2014.


The Bruyère CLRI was proud to attend this event to share details regarding all of our projects at an exhibit booth. We were also invited to present our innovation-focused project on Case Costing in LTC, led by Simon Akinsulie (Bruyère Continuing Care). In addition, we displayed the posters for both this Case Costing project, and Pedram Noghani’s (University of Ottawa) project on Modeling Community Care Services for Alternative Level of Care (ALC) Patients: A Queuing Network Approach.
