Don’t miss the 2018 Canadian interRAI Conference!

Wellness for Life - A Priority for All

The 9th Canadian interRAI conference provides an important forum that brings together researchers, policy makers and practitioners using the interRAI system of instruments in community and home care, residential/long-term care, acute care, assisted living, mental health and palliative care. These evidence-based electronic instruments capture client/patient assessment information that is used to support care planning and delivery, quality improvement, health system management and policy development.

The conference planning committee welcomed the submission of both podium and poster presentations for the upcoming conference.  Thank you to all those who have submitted your presentations. 

We had an outstanding response to our call for abstracts, and the conference is shaping up as an exciting opportunity to learn from leading-edge research.

We're excited to announce two of the new assessment systems that will be launched at this year's conference: 

The interRAI Hospital Suite of Instrument​​​​s

Designed to provide a fully integrated assessment system across the hospital continuum of care from the emergency department to post-acute care/rehabilitation settings.  Each assessment system within the Hospital Systems supports the care of all older adults including those who require more comprehensive assessments and care.  Each of the Hospital System's assessments provide a framework for multidisciplinary care and aim to support the overall continuity of care for patients.

The interRAI Child and Youth Suite of Assessment Instruments​

This suite is comprised of an integrated health and social service information system that can be used to assess, respond to and monitor the status of vulunerable children and youth.  This assessment system, like that of the adult interRAI system, can be utilized to support comprehensive care planning, outcome measurement, quality indicators and case mix classification to estimate resource intensity.  This assessment system is now being adopted for use across Ontario in a variety of service settings.
