RAPP mobilizes its research through an integrated knowledge mobilization process and a strategic communication plan. This ensures that knowledge created is shared beyond academia and, in the words of Henry Marshall Tory (the first president of the University of Alberta), is used “for the public good.”

Governments, service providers, and not-for-profit agencies use our research to inform policies, improve practices and programs, and advocate for better support for older adults and family/friend caregivers. The media often interview our team members to inform the public of issues associated with growing older and family/friend care. Below are examples of our knowledge mobilization efforts.
