Abstract

Population aging represents a major challenge as the proportion of people aged over 65 years worldwide is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050. This has profound implications for the planning and delivery of health and social care. The knowledge we want to disseminate come from a systematic review on e-health interventions for healthy aging (HA). This project arises from a research collaboration putting together complementary expertise in information and communication technology and aging. The overarching goal of this project is to ensure rapid translation of scientific evidence on effective e-health interventions promoting HA in order to accelerate their implementation for the benefit of older adults and their caregivers. Various knowledge translation strategies will be developed and implemented with knowledge users.
