Schlegel Centre for Learning, Research & Innovation in Long Term Care

As a program of the RIA, the Schlegel Centre for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) aims to catalyze system transformation through research-informed practice change and innovation in workforce preparedness.

Changing demographics are putting increasing pressure on health care costs and funding for the health care system to the point that it will not be sustainable for the future. In the face of these demographics and an already resource-limited system, the only solution is innovation.
