Dupuis, Kate; Kousaie, Shanna; Wittich, Walter; Spadafora, Pat
Educational Gerontology, v33 n4 p273-292 Apr 2007
A grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for training on communication and social interaction in healthy aging was used to support the collaboration of three students and one program mentor from various age-related backgrounds (e.g., vision, hearing, cognition, and social work) to develop a transdisciplinary and interinstitutional research program. The first project focused on integrating the United Nations Principles for Older Persons into a research agenda to gauge awareness of the principles in 100 seniors-related organizations in Ontario, Canada. The questionnaire elicited both quantitative and qualitative data related to the principles, and these data are discussed herein. Questionnaire, United Nations Principles for Older Persons, and cover letter sent to participants are appended.
