McMaster Optimal Aging Portal
What is the McMaster Optimal Aging Portal?
The overall goal of the Portal is to ensure you know about and have access to high-quality information that can help you remain healthy, active and engaged as long as possible, and to manage your health conditions. The Portal aims to be a trusted voice on optimal aging for citizens, clinicians, public health professionals and policymakers.
Content for citizens
The Portal has several types of content for the general public including consumer-friendly Evidence Summaries drawn from high quality research articles, Web Resources Ratings, Blog Posts and more.
The content for health professionals is drawn from three best-in-class resources for clinical, public health and policymaking questions, and the search interface helps you find the best available research evidence about optimal aging.
