CIMVHR continues to prioritize its partnerships and collaborations with other national and international institutes that share the same goal of advancing military, Veteran, and family health research. Building and strengthening our network of expertise leads to a diversity of perspectives and innovation and, ultimately, will improve the health and well-being of the populations we serve.
Over the last year, CIMVHR made a connection and began collaborating with Perley Health Centre of Excellence in Frailty-Informed Care. Perley Health is a leader in advancing the quality of care for seniors and Veterans living with frailty through practical research and the sharing of resources. This partnership is an important step to ensure we prioritize focusing on aging Veterans, and Perley Health is the leader in this field.
