CNNRA’s vision is to to build nursing research capacity to lead Pan-Canadian interdisciplinary research teams, conduct innovative gerontological research, and to use research findings to improve the quality of life of older adults. A closer collaboration between CNNRA and CGNA has the potential to benefit both groups (e.g., increase relevance of research, opportunities for learning and KT), and the older adults that they serve.


  • Introduce CGNA members to the mission, vision, and objectives of CNNRA;
  • Explore possible advantages of a closer collaboration between CGNA and CNNRA members;
  • Discuss inclusion of CNNRA workshops or other events at future CGNA conferences;
  • Identify topics and skill-building activities that are of interest to CGNA members and which could be offered by CNNRA.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this meeting, gerontological nurses will have a better understanding of the following:

  1. What is CNNRA and who is currently involved?
  2. How might a collaboration between CNNRA and CGNA members benefit the older adults they serve?
  3. How can CNNRA and CGNA move forward in closer collaboration?


Formal presentation (20 min) followed by facilitated small group discussions and large group debrief, with time for informal networking at the end. There is no registration cost and light refreshments are provided — spaces are limited.
