Will you be there for me when I'm old?: How Canada's aging population will impact the health care system
Thursday, November 25, 2010, 6:30 p.m.
1214 Queen Street West, Toronto
It's a fact: we're all getting older. Over the next thirty years, the proportion of Canadians over 65 is expected to double. It's also a fact that seniors need more health services. What impact will this demographic shift have on Canada's health care system? Will seniors swamp the system? Will health costs skyrocket? And will we be able to provide dignified and appropriate care to all who need it? Please join us for a lively discussion of the latest research evidence on this important subject.
This event is presented by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research's Institute of Health Services and Policy Research and its Knowledge Translation Branch. Refreshments will be served.
