“First Ones in, Last Ones out”| Community of Innovation Podcast, Episode 10

There is no doubt COVID-19 has altered the world as we know it, leaving no corner of our lives untouched. Everything, from our healthcare system to our economy and social practices has been affected. Yet for many older adults, the pandemic has only heightened persisting challenges, such as social isolation. In part one of this three-part series, the Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) teams-up with Baycrest@Home to explore the topic of social isolation from the perspectives of older adults and the healthcare innovators working to address it. Join our host, Dr. Allison Sekuler, as she talks to Dr. Christine Overall and Katheleen Ellis about their lived experiences during the pandemic, and what it’s like to be “the first ones in, and last ones out” of lockdown. On the innovator side of the discussion, Dalas Forget, former Seniors’ Centre Without Walls Coordinator, and Avi Price, Co-founder and Chief Operations Officer of Uniper Care Technologies, talk about how aging and brain health solutions can be used to tackle social isolation and support front-line healthcare workers during this time.

Episode 9 - Sizzle and Snake (Oil): Health Literacy in the Digital Age

Technology has transformed our access to medical and health information, for good and ill. Web search results put serious researchers and clinicians on the same 'stage' as digital snake oil salesmen, all fighting for people's limited attention. Add to this the growing importance of preventing and managing chronic conditions such as dementia, and the need for health literacy has never been greater. Enter the health literacy innovators! This episode, CABHI Managing Director Dr. Allison Sekuler sits down with three people that have taken on this challenge. Their projects, the Fountain of Health and iGeriCare, each combine digital technology with evidence-based health information to reach people with the information they need to stay healthy, and care for others, as they age. Join us as we hear how detail-oriented researchers learn to add a little 'sizzle' to their 'steak', use the principles of behaviour change on both patients and their fellow clinicians, and win the battle to relegat...

Episode 8 - Eight Simple Rules for Dating my Health System (LIVE)

Innovators are constantly courting their local healthcare systems, trying to meet the needs of an aging population. They're constantly on the prowl, seeking acceptance and, ultimately, a long term relationship. But before achieving such wedded bliss, innovators face the arduous task of navigating the health innovation dating jungle. Healthcare innovators often find it impossible to get a date, let alone get hitched. In a special live taping at MaRS' 2019 Health Innovation Week, the CABHI Community of Innovation podcast brings you a dynamic conversation with companies, funders, and healthcare organizations in order to better understand: - the dating landscape that is the Ontario healthcare system; - how innovators can make themselves more attractive to healthcare organizations; - who to date; and - what is important for innovators to bring to the dating table for healthcare organizations. And most importantly, our listeners can learn what role clowns do or don't play in their dating ...

Episode 7 - Health Researchers and Innovators: Can We Be Friends? (LIVE)

Yes, we're all sophisticated grownups, but like at any school playground, researchers and innovators are often at a loss as to how to connect. Do we have anything in common? Will we speak the same language? Most importantly, should we play freeze tag or four-square? On a more serious note, how do traditional academic and innovation ecosystems support and sustain authentic and productive relationships with real outputs that benefit everyone? How do we incentivize these seemingly disparate parties to want to work together? Join the CABHI Community of Innovation podcast team for a special taping from CABHI's 2019 What's Next Canada Conference in Toronto, Canada. Our panel guests will share their thoughts on how funders, academic institutions, and innovators can create a sum greater than its individual parts. What are the challenges and what are the rewards? And how do our listeners find their future research or innovation bestie in this fast-paced ecosystem? Featuring panelists Dr. Rya...

Episode 6 - Riches and Niches of Cognitive Health (Community of Innovation Podcast)

Too often the discussion of aging is focused exclusively on loss. An aging society demands our active engagement to adapt and address new challenges and emerging opportunities. Mary Furlong compares aging to an emerging market, closer to a new nation opening its borders to trade. Today on the show we visit this new emerging marketplace with the help of two knowledgeable explorers: Mary Furlong, of Mary Furlong and Associates, and Kaveh Vejdani, Chief Medical & Technology Officer & Co-founder of Darmiyan. This wide-ranging conversation with co-hosts Allison Sekuler and Spencer Giffin covers the dynamics of this new market, the role of research and innovation, and the many opportunities to do well while doing good for older adults.

Episode 5 - Pivot Like a Boss (Community of Innovation Podcast)

To pivot or not to pivot, that is the question. In an agile and nimble innovation space, how do you “pivot like a boss” and change one or more components of your business model to take advantage of emergent opportunities, meet an unmet need, maximize your impact, or course correct when you’ve gone down the wrong path? Changing your business model – your value proposition, profit model, resource model, operations, or processes – can be scary. But you would be in good company if you did. Some of the biggest names in the business – Twitter, Groupon, Pinterest – are the results of one, if not many, pivots. But how do you find the courage to pivot in(to) the aging and brain health innovation space? Join the CABHI team and their guests, Dr. Zayna Khayat (SE Health) and Michiel Rauws (X2AI) in this special international episode – guests in three cities across two countries! – as we discuss what a pivot is and what it isn’t; what are the key signs to pivot; what is the anti-pivot ...

Episode 4, Part II - "Is My Baby Ugly?" Engaging End Users (Community of Innovation Podcast)

Welcome to Part 2 of our look at end user engagement. In Part 1, we heard from the CABHI experts on the basics of speaking with end users and customers when developing your innovation. In this episode we speak with two members of CABHI's Seniors Advisory Panel, and a team of innovators that worked with the panel on their CABHI-funded project. We ask hard hitting questions like, 'How'd that go for you?', and 'So, was your baby ugly?'. Listen in as we compare innovation theory to practice. Joining our host Allison Sekuler are Sue Drohan and Deb Bernstein (both members of CABHI's Seniors Advisory Panel), and Paula Chidwick (Director of Research & Corporate Ethics and Ethicist)and Jill Oliver (Community Ethicist), both at William Osler Health System, and the team behind PoET (Prevention of Error-Based Transfers) project and app.

Episode 4, Part I - "Is My Baby Ugly?" End User Engagement (Community of Innovation Podcast)

Engaging end users is considered mandatory or irrelevant, depending on the style of innovator you speak with. Should you co-design your product in order to ensure you're addressing a real need? Or should you squeeze into a black turtleneck and invent the future others cannot yet see? As we hear in this episode of our podcast, the answers aren't mutually exclusive. And one way or another, the world is going to eventually tell you whether your "baby" is ugly or not. How and when should you engage end users to avoid pitfalls, reassess some of your treasured assumptions, and still meet those pesky deadlines and stay on budget? Join the COI team in the first of a two-part episode on engaging end users in the development of innovative health solutions.

Episode 3 - Keeping the Lights On, feat. GeriMedRisk (Community of Innovation Podcast)

Your innovation is exciting, world changing, elegantly designed - but can you pay the rent? CABHI loves innovation, but the world doesn't have enough closets for all the great services and prototypes collecting dust because there wasn't a plan to pay for them. Financial sustainability is not easy, but the good news is that there isn't only one road to achieving it. Join us as we engage our special guest, who has found herself in the unexpected role of bootstrapping a promising clinical service (and service model) from idea, to pilot, to program. Dr. Joanne Ho is a geriatrician, clinical pharmacologist, and internist practicing at Grand River Hospital and St. Mary’s General Hospital in Kitchener, ON. She is an Assistant Professor, at McMaster University's Divisions of Geriatric Medicine & Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology. She is also aSchlegel Clinical Research Scientist atSchlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging. Most germane to her appearance on our podcast, she is the creator...

Episode 2 - Knowledge Mobilization and Sustainability (Community of Innovation Podcast)

This episode we visit a topic very close to our hearts: implementation and sustainability. At CABHI, putting novel solutions into actual practice is at the heart of how we define innovation. The long and complicated path to sustainable implementation remains a profound barrier to healthcare innovation. We sat down with two esteemed experts (real ‘K Stars’, if you will!) in the field of Knowledge Mobilization to talk about what they do and how they do it. Dr. Julia Moore (Senior Director at The Center for Implementation) and Lora Bruyn-Martin (Research Application Specialist at Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging, Innovation Integration Lead at Schlegel Villages) join the regular CABHI panel for a lively discussion of KM theory, practice and how to pronounce “COM-B”.
