“Frail elders are a vulnerable population often unable to advocate for themselves. Geriatric health service evaluation and research serves as an important opportunity to advocate on the behalf of older adults – to hear their voice, ensure their health needs are met, and to increase our understanding of how to develop and implement high quality health services.”
