Partnering to promote health care equity for ethnic minority older adults


Project Summary:

Recent immigrant older adults and some visible minorities who have aged here experience health inequities in Canada. These are primarily related to difficulties with the complex process of accessing suitable care. However, Canadian research on the topic is extremely fragmented and hard to find and knowledge users charged with designing policy and programs do not have the evidence they need to help them to address access barriers experienced by ethnic minority older adults. Effort is needed to consolidate existing evidence and design research that fills knowledge gaps with respect to access so as to generate a decision-making tool that can guide knowledge users in their decisions across different health and social care contexts. This project intends to address this gap.
