Interested in easy-to-understand, evidence-based information on healthy aging?

Do you promote healthy aging or advocate for seniors' issues in your work? Are you involved in developing legislation, policies, programs or services for older adults? Are you looking for evidence-based health information for self-management in older patients?

The webinar to learn how the McMaster Optimal Aging Portal can help you.

This online database and knowledge sharing portal is part of the Labarge Optimal Aging Initiative.

How can the McMaster Optimal Aging Portal help you?

The McMaster Optimal Aging Portal is a free and easy-to-use website that gives you access to high-quality information to help you age well. Many other online resources offer healthy aging information. What sets the Portal apart from the crowd is its emphasis on providing only the best evidence, and telling you why it’s considered the best. The Portal filters out the noise and makes it easy to understand how evidence-based information can help you — whether you’re a citizen, a clinician, a public health professional or a policymaker.

  • Content is drawn from three internationally-recognized sources for public health, clinical and policymaking evidence on aging issues.
  • Blog posts, web resource ratings and evidence summaries provide quick and easy-to-read ‘bottom line’ messages, translating the evidence into formats that are easily understood by a wide audience.
  • Tailored email alerts, Facebook and @Mac_AgingNews Twitter updates deliver the latest research evidence on headline topics directly to readers.
