CSAH partners with Queen’s University and other educational institutions to support both self-paced and facilitated online learning in aging and health. We offer age-related course material to support a range of learners needs.
The Core Geriatrics Curriculum includes topics routinely covered within the undergraduate and resident teachings in Geriatric Medicine at Queen's University. Materials will also be relevant to other health professional groups.
CSAH is passionate about lifelong learning for health care providers and others working with older adults. We have partnered with community agencies, long-term care and hospitals to provide evidenced based practice information through in-person, web-based and blended learning opportunities.
