Communities of Practice

Nutrition Community of Practice: Nutritional Health of Aging Adults 



The Nutrition Community of Practice (CoP) promotes the importance of food and nutrition for healthy aging, and shares research and best practices in nutrition care for older adults across the care continuum.  

Goals of the Nutrition Community of Practice: 
  • Connect health professionals interested in promoting food and nutrition for healthy aging.
  • Promote evidence-based nutrition care and promotion for older adults by exchanging knowledge among researchers, professional organizations, practitioners, policymakers and caregivers.
  • Provide opportunities for knowledge exchange among researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and caregivers.
  • Disseminate best practices in nutrition care and promotion, and develop resources to address members’ information needs.   
  • Advocate for research, innovations and best practices in nutrition care and promotion as it relates to healthy aging.

The Nutrition CoP’s membership is over 300 and includes representatives from multiple stakeholder groups (front line staff, practitioners, educators, researchers and caregivers). The CoP welcomes members from across Ontario, care settings (retirement, long-term care, home care, community/independent living), and professions (health professionals and practitioners including direct support caregivers, leadership/administration, researchers, educators, and policy makers).
