Centre on Aging and Health

Founded in 2002, the CAH has been facilitating health research and training. The CAH developed and coordinates an M.A./M.Sc. Program in Gerontology: the only interdisciplinary graduate gerontology degree program of its kind on the prairies. The program began in 2005 and is based on a partnership of three faculties: Arts, Social Work, and Kinesiology and Health Studies.

In addition, contributions to the development of a gerontology research network have been very successful in obtaining research funding; CAH members have been recipients of a variety of prestigious honours and awards for research, teaching, public service, and other important areas.

The CAH is important from a provincial and national standpoint and has developed partnerships with health regions in Saskatchewan as well as provincial and local health organizations.

  • Help Us Spread Information About Pain in Dementia (#SeePainMoreClearly)

    27 Sep 2019

    With the support of organizations such as the AGE-WELL NCE and stakeholders, we launched a large-scale social media campaign #SeePainMoreClearly on October 1, 2019, the International Day of Older Persons. Help our knowledge mobilization effort by viewing our 2-minute informational video on YouTube https://youtu.be/9ONjQ7_ZvZA which addresses the problem of pain under-management/underassessment in older adults with dementia, along with evidence-based solutions. We also encourage you to fill out our brief video evaluation questionnaire https://uregina.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_24AV6gjEVjxpiTj. Resources can be accessed through www.seepainmoreclearly.org. Join our conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #SeePainMoreClearly! If you have other ways of helping with this initiative, please contact Louise Castillo (castilll@uregina.ca).
