Fraser Health, Capital Health in Nova Scotia, and the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement, engaged in a collaborative entitled CARES (Community Actions and Resources for Seniors) to proactively work with seniors to delay or reverse frailty. This session will provide an overview of how the collaborative formed and what was required to make a cross jurisdiction to cross country partnership effective.  The presentation will also include a review of the challenges and opportunities that emerged from this collaborative.  Working across jurisdictions can be a great way to find innovative, cost effective solutions to common issues.
