York U research program to shed light on gender influences in senior care work

York University (March 1, 2013).

York University Professor Tamara Daly will lead a research program studying the gendered health impacts of performing paid and unpaid care work for seniors in long-term care (LTC) settings.

The professor has been awarded one of nine Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) research chairs in Gender Work and Health. The program, Working well: understanding how gender influences working conditions and health in long term care settings across Canada and internationally, will receive $800,000 in CIHR funding over five years, to train and mentor the next generation of researchers and to transfer knowledge to decision makers and front-line care workers.
