Presentation: Dr. Dobbins will share with us the origins of the McMaster Optimal Aging Portal and describe it's purpose, indicate how to use it, and give some examples.
Web Resources are consumer-friendly information such as blogs, videos and information sheets that Portal staff have identified as potentially relevant to older adults and their caregivers, then rated for use of research evidence, rigorous development process, and usability. The key messages are summarized.
Evidence Summaries are short one- or two-page documents that describe in consumer-friendly language the findings from research on a particular topic. The summaries are prepared by researchers associated with the McMaster Optimal Aging Portal.
Maureen Dobbins joined the School of Nursing at McMaster University as an Assistant Professor in 1999. Currently a Professor, she holds cross appointments with the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, the School of Rehabilitation Sciences, and the Masters of Science in eHealth program.
