June 13-14, 2016 - Edmonton, Alberta
We look forward to seeing all the TREC stakeholders at our upcoming Annual General Meeting! This is an opportunity for us to share with our partners what we've discovered in our research. But more importantly we get invaluable feedback from our attendees about what matters to them. Discussions are always lively and informative.
2015 AGM

Canada's aging population: It's not a crisis but are we ready for the opportunity?

Will be the title of Dr Michael Rachlis' presentation at the AGM reception this year. Dr Rachlis is a tireless champion of Canada's public health care system. He is a frequent media commentator on health policy issues and the author of three national bestselling books about Canada's health care system. 
If you've received an invitation to the AGM, we look forward to seeing you soon!

We've got smart students!

Shining a spotlight on our star students who are passionate about improving the lives of older adults. Congratulations to Stephanie Chamberlain for being the recipient of the Dr Peter N McCracken Legacy Scholarship. You make us proud!

Love secure data?

We do too because nothing matters more to us than the security and confidentiality of our data. TREC stores and analyses data in the the Health Research Data Repository (HRDR), a secure virtual research data environment within the Faculty of Nursing (University of Alberta) that supports health related research projects. The HRDR supports collaboration across disciplines, and promotes the secondary use of health research data. The HRDR's mission is to stimulate research while building a collaborative culture for data management and confidentiality.

The gate keepers

When it comes to keeping data safe, these folks know what they are doing. They won't let anyone into the HRDR unless they know the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.
Kevin Challacombe is the new HRDR Co-ordinator. He brings extensive experience in health data management, most recently from the Ontario HIV Treatment Network where he worked for the past 14 years. His most recent role was as a research co-ordinator specializing in questionnaire and clinical data collection, data security, and data management. Kevin recently moved back to Edmonton after living in Toronto for the past 15 years.
Peter Davis is the Executive Administrator with the Faculty of Nursing and leads the Technology Services unit. His first personal computer experience was with an Apple IIe and then the original Macintosh 128K, released in 1984. He claims to be old enough to have coded on punch cards, carried a beeper and subscribed to a CompuServe account.

March researcher meeting

As researchers we spend a lot of time in the office, but what we love most is face to face meetings where we can share our ideas on how to improve long term care in Canada. We brought all of our researchers together from across Canada, US, and Europe, in March and discussed TREC's research road map for the next few years. In case you don't believe us, here are some pictures to prove it!

We're easing up on your Inbox

You will have noticed that you didn't get your TREC fix last month. As part of our continued effort to ease up on your inbox we've decided to bring you the TREC newsletter every other month. We thought we should make this announcement here after the flood of emails last month asking where your monthly TREC newsletter was. This last sentence was a complete fabrication.
