Snapshots of aging

Snapshots of aging are intended for key stakeholders, such as older adults and caregivers along with the community organizations and government ministries that serve and support them.  Below are links to accessible knowledge mobilization products in a variety of formats that we have created over the last few years: FACT sheets, infographics, videos, blog posts and podcasts. While these products are available for your use (without permission or compensation for the use of our work), the original source must be appropriately acknowledged and referenced as per copyright regulations.

Our article Using technology to support caregivers of older people with dementia was published in The Conversation, academic rigour with journalistic flair.

We wrote a blog to recognize carers in Canada and understand their barriers to technology adoption for Advancing Policies and Practices in Technology and Aging (APPTA), AGE-WELL's national policy innovation hub in Fredericton.  Andrew Magnaye, one of our doctoral students, reflected on the APPTA Policy Challenge in his blog post Uncovering the Black Box Between Research and Policy. And Janet Fast and Myles Leslie (University of Calgary) were featured in an APPTA Mileage Podcast on Goals vs Needs, What Caregivers Want.


Infographics are one-page, thematic visual summaries of evidence-based key messages created specifically for community members.


Videos make our research accessible to a wider audience and are often used by or co-created with our community partners for educational and outreach purposes. Here are some of our recent knowledge mobilization creations, which are posted on the AGE-WELL WP2 YouTube Channel:


FACT Sheets

FACT sheets are 4-page research briefs that are topical and intended for a policy and practice audience. Many of these briefs synthesize and integrate research findings across projects.
