Role of social systems in health of seniors living in rural Saskatchewan
Last Updated: February 4, 2014
Goals / Outcomes: The aim of the project was to determine if there were differing views concerning both the capacity for rural communities to address health care needs for seniors and the ways in which social systems influence the health of seniors. As part of a broad literature review on rural seniors' health, researchers found a knowledge gap specifically on rural senior men's health and conducted a literature review targeting this gap. SPHERU has released a report of the pilot study and is conducting the Healthy Aging in Place follow-up study.
