Research Volunteer Position

Sarah Radcliffe, a Research Assistant from the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University, in partnership with The GERAS Centre at St. Peter’s Hospital, is looking for student volunteers. They are conducting a research program from the current Health TAPESTRY research program within McMaster Family Health Team titled TRIAGE (Targeting, Referring, Intervening to Promote Healthy Ageing; a feasibility study). This study seeks to understand the effect of a 6-month intervention that includes exercise, nutrition, medication management, and care support on frailty. They are looking for volunteers to be trained to help with client home based exercise prescription.

Specifically, they are looking for students that have a Kinesiology background, first aid and CPR, enjoy working with older adults, and would like to be a part of a clinical opportunity to build upon many health professional skills.

Successful applicants will complete in-person training days put on by the program as well as conduct home visits with clients centred on exercise and nutrition – a great experience that many students wouldn’t want to pass up!

If you require any further information please don’t hesitate to contact Sarah at: kennedysar@hhsc.ca or Dr. Larkin Lamarche in the Department of Family Medicine who coordinates Health TAPESTRY (lamarche@mcmaster.ca).
