SALTY PROJECT IN ITS FINAL YEAR: Forty plus members of the SALTY team, including researchers, knowledge users, clinicians and trainees, met in Halifax on May 27th and 28th. This in-person opportunity to meet allowed for rich discussions and engagement around SALTY work to date and enabled future planning for dissemination, knowledge translation and mobilization of findings and key messages during the project's last year. Findings and insights to date have been featured in a brainXchange webinar, hosted by the Alzheimer Society of Canada, in April and at the Northwood Research Symposium in Nova Scotia in June. Findings were also been presented at several conferences in May - Qualitatives Conference, Trent Aging Conference and CAHSPR Conference. This fall SALTY work will be presented at the This is Aging OLTCA conference (Sept), Canadian Hospice and Palliative Care conference (Sept) and the Canadian Association on Gerontology conference (Oct).
