Research within the Division covers the geriatric syndromes of incontinence, frailty and dementia as well as the application of assistive devices to aid independence of living.

There is a major collaboration with researchers in the Faculty of Nursing in the area of knowledge transfer and mobilization with regard to the quality of care for nursing home residents and the association of urinary incontinence and falls in older people. There are active links with researchers in the UK and elsewhere in Canada in these areas.
