Canadian Frailty Network (CFN)
Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is dedicated to improving care for older Canadians living with frailty, estimated at over 1 million which will increasingly rise as the population ages. Frailty is associated with poor outcomes including increased mortality, decreased quality of life and increased healthcare resource consumption. Through our efforts, CFN increases the knowledge necessary to improve frailty outcomes and increase frailty recognition in the Canadian healthcare system. We are a not-for-profit organization recently refunded for a second five-year term by the Canadian government's Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) program.
