AGE-WELL’s 5th Annual EPIC Summer Institute

Courtyard by Marriott, Prince George, British Columbia | June 20 – 24, 2022

Applications will only be accepted through Forum

Older adults and caregivers want access to quality and equitable health care that is proactive in addressing their needs and enhances their ability to live an active and healthy life. However, Canada’s health-care system is complex, and older adults and caregivers often face challenges such as getting to doctor’s appointments, obtaining health records, navigating the system and affording new technologies that improve quality of care. These challenges are only compounded when faced in a remote or rural setting.

From virtual care platforms to wearable health technologies, there is an unprecedented opportunity for disruptive technology to improve the health and quality of life of rural and remote seniors, create more sustainable or integrated health-care solutions, and open up new possibilities for businesses and government.

#epicSI2022 participants will work directly with older adult, caregiver, and healthcare provider stakeholders to co-create innovative solutions – technologies, policies, and services – that will empower older adults to play an active role in their own health management and provide caregivers with peace of mind.

The 2022 AGE-WELL Summer Institute is co-hosted by the Centre for Technology Adoption for Aging in the North and will take place in Prince George, British Columbia (June 20-24, 2022).

Eligibility:

  • Applicants must be current network HQP in good standing (e.g. have completed reporting requirements, returned all signed documents etc.) who have not attended a previous AGE-WELL Summer Institute
  • Preference will be given to HQP who have made measurable progress towards completing, or have completed, the Innovators of Tomorrow Certificate Program

AGE-WELL will cover the cost of economy travel, accommodation, breakfasts and lunches for all Canadian-based applicants. Those requiring international flights will be asked to cover the cost of their travel to the Prince George Airport.

Application Deadline: February 28, 2022 (via Forum)
