 Introduction  

 
  Research studies contribute to our knowledge of health, illness, and disability. Research findings are used to improve healthcare, such as treatments, clinical care practices, and health services. We feel that it is important for research studies to focus on the things that matter most to patients and clinicians.

The Scientific Office of Alberta’s Seniors Health Strategic Clinical Network™ is conducting a project to determine the priority areas for seniors’ health research. The purpose of this project is to ask patients, their caregivers, and clinicians what they see as important to seniors’ health in Alberta. We will compare this information to what we already know from research studies and to prioritize research that focuses on the unanswered questions.

   
  We have conducted an intial survey to identify the questions about seniors’ health that are important to older adults, caregivers of older adults, and health and social service providers working with older adults in the province of Alberta. 

We are preparing for the next phase of this work - beginning to prioritize the issues identified through the survey in order to determine what matters most for seniors' health and healthcare.
