Frailty and healthy aging topic of special CHEPA seminar

14 Jun 2012

Frailty and healthy aging strategies in Europe, viewed from a health economic perspective, will be the topic of a special CHEPA seminar on Friday, June 15.

Nicholas Sirven, Health Economist with IRDES in Paris, France and Lead Researcher for the Frailty and its Consequences for Health Care Systems program, will discuss the implications for health care policy-makers of research data from the Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) and collaborations with Canadian colleagues in Québec and Ontario.

SHARE is a multidisciplinary and cross-national cohort of individual data on health, socio-economic status and social and family relationships of more than 140,000 individuals aged 50 or over in 19 countries. The ongoing study makes use of four waves of panel data to better understand the dynamics of frailty in the general population and the potential socio-economic mechanisms that influence the frailty process.

The seminar will take place in CRL B119, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
