AGE-WELL Position Paper is an official statement by the AGE-WELL NCE. It uses evidence and expert advice to summarize best practices in the technology and aging field as related to the mission and goals of the Network, including issues related to technology development and implementation, practice, and policy. Position Papers provide a rationale for decision-making and professional skills for researchers, clinicians, practitioners, care providers, industry, and policy-makers.
Topics will typically be generated from within AGE-WELL, however a topic proposal may also come from outside of the network, with sponsorship by an AGE-WELL member (i.e. a WP/CC leader, project investigator, trainee, or network partner).
