Brenda Strafford Centre for Excellence in Gerontological

The Brenda Strafford Centre for Excellence in Gerontological Nursing is located in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary. Its aim is to create a new perspective on the care of older adults by allowing nursing students to work directly with this population, in a variety of settings, including long term care facilities. Preparing nurses to meet the age specific health needs of older adults is mandated by demographic changes in Alberta and Canada. The Centre was established in part to address this need, as well as to support professional nursing practice.
