One of the components of the Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) Interdisciplinary Training Program is for HQPs to disseminate their work through publication and meetings. The main dissemination event of CFN is the annual conference; the 3rd CFN Annual Conference on Improving Care for the Frail Elderly was held in Toronto, September 27-29, 2015 and the 4th CFN Annual Conference was held in Toronto, on April 23-24, 2017. The goal for both conferences was to bring together key researchers, practitioners, educators, policy-makers, advocates, and organizations devoted to improving health care for the seriously ill, frail elderly, and to highlight HQP research. All 2015 and 2016 HQPs in the Summer Student Award Program, the Interdisciplinary Fellowship Project, and project HQP involved with a CFN-funded project submitted an abstract for their affiliated conference. The abstracts were reviewed for quality, and the authors presented them as posters during the conferences. In what follows, we present the compilation of research abstracts that were presented by CFN HQP at the 3rd and 4th annual conferences. The annual conference will continue to be expanded in coming years, and next year we will accept abstracts from all researchers who are engaged with the seriously ill, frail elderly.
