Life Stage Research Program

Program Lead: Susan Bronskill
Program Coordinator: lifeadmin@ices.on.ca

The Life Stage Research Program focuses on understanding health, care needs and outcomes throughout the life course, including infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and later life. Program scientists examine the trajectories and transitions of individuals among care providers and across care settings, as well as the development of health conditions throughout life. As such, there are opportunities for us to share theoretical, methodological, and policy approaches across interdisciplinary projects. These include not only developing methodological approaches for longitudinal analysis, but also considering contextual issues of health services and systems such as socioeconomic conditions, families, communities and social relationships. The scope of our research includes:

  • Child and youth health
  • Maternal health
  • Aging and health
  • Continuing care (e.g., home care, long-term care)
  • End-of-life care
  • Family caregiver health
  • Sex, gender and health
