Dr. Doug Angus Receives SSHRC Grant


Seeking quality health care for seniors

Dr. Doug Angus, Telfer School of Management, received a $66,750 grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) through the International Opportunities Fund program. Dr. Angus’ project entitled Seniors’ Support Services has the collaboration of team members Corinne Grenier, Euromed Marseille, and Michèle St-Pierre, Université Laval.

Canada and France are currently attempting to address a number of issues related to caring for their elderly and disabled populations, particularly with the underlying goal of the health policy to maintain such population groups in their own residences. While various initiatives to maintain seniors and the disabled in their homes have been implemented, little solid research has been done to ascertain how well these services have been implemented and to determine the possible leading practices that may result in effective integration, management and governance of such services.

With the collaboration of Champlain Local Health Integration Network, Canada, and the Maison départementale des personnes handicapées, France, Dr. Angus’ project aims to evaluate the governance, integration and coordination activities and stakeholders in order to ascertain leading and innovative practices, tools and management processes that may be applicable in both jurisdictions. This project also seeks to offer policy recommendations to decision makers in both countries while also striving to arrive at approaches that may be adapted elsewhere.
