CLOSED: Caregiver Research Study in Ontario

All spots have now been filled. Thank you for your interest.

Are you a caregiver? CARP and NICE need you!

CARP is embarking on a unique and exciting research partnership with NICE (National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly), a world-class organization in the field of aging. The outcome of this partnership will be to provide access to effective and useful resource tools for older Canadians in the areas of caregiving, financial literacy, elder abuse, and dementia to name a few. They are still recruiting caregivers to participate in the study.
In this phase of the NICE-CARP study, resource tools will be evaluated related to caregiving, elder abuse and financial literacy. These tools have been developed over the past 10 years. In Ontario, they are looking for informal caregivers, specifically, to help us evaluate our resources.

Who is Conducting this Study?
For over a decade now, NICE has been leading the way to improve the care for older adults and their families. They do this primarily by creating educational tools that share some of the latest research and evidence on aging with the people who need it most: older adults, their families, and professional caregivers such as nurses, doctors, and social workers.
What is the Study About?
NICE has created dozens of tools on a variety of topics, including: caregiving, financial literacy, end-of-life, mental health, dementia, elder abuse, and the law to mention on a few.
They are currently in the process of conducting a research study to look at whether or not their tools are helpful to people, how they can be improved, and what new tools are needed. This is why CARP and NICE need your help!
