The National Initiative in the Care of the Elderly (NICE), at the University of Calgary, is looking for research volunteers!

Are You a Practitioner Working with Older Adults?

Are you interested in helping us identify how print or computer based information may help us learn about elder abuse and neglect? The National Initiative in the Care of the Elderly (NICE) is interested in hearing from you.

We would like to talk with you about your experience of using information to learn about elder abuse and neglect. You will be asked to complete two surveys either by print or computer format. You may also be asked to be interviewed either in person or by telephone.

Please download the Poster and post in your workplace >>> NICE Poster.pdf

For more information and to see if you qualify, please call Dr. Sandi Hirst (403) 220-6270 and leave a message or email at nice@calgary.ca (including your name and telephone number).

We will return your call to explain the study.

This study has been reviewed by the Conjoint Health Research Ethics Board REB17-0454

 

2019 CGNA Biannual Conference coming to Alberta!

Posted by on May 25, 2017 in Calgary Blog, Drayton Valley Blog, Edmonton Blog, Fort McMurray Blog, Lethbridge Blog, Provincial Blog, Red Deer Blog | 0 comments

I am extremely happy to announce that the 2019 CGNA Biannual Conference is coming to Alberta!

While it was suggested that it might be coming at our education/ conference day in Red Deer in April, it was confirmed at this years' CGNA conference in Ottawa earlier this month.

We have already started looking at potential locations for the conference, and will likely be looking for more volunteers soon.

The conference this past year was very good, and was attended by close to 300 people from across Canada. We had a lot of positive reactions and comments from people who were excited about the possibility of coming to Alberta for the next conference!
