Cochrane-Campbell Global Ageing Partnership Evidence and Gap Maps
1. Evidence and gap map on digital technology to mitigate social isolation and loneliness for older adults (ongoing in 2022)
We collaborated with the Canadian Red Cross and the World Health Organization to develop an evidence and gap map on digital technology to mitigate social isolation and loneliness for older adults.

We are seeking feedback on this map, so we would like to invite knowledge users (e.g., practitioners, consumers, researchers, stakeholders ) with an interest in this area to respond to our very brief survey of 3 questions about the EGM.

2. Evidence and gap map on health and social care at home (2021)
We developed an Evidence and Gap Map (EGM) to scope the evidence base care for older adults living at home. An EGM is a decision making and research prioritization tool that highlights gaps in research to inform strategic health and social policy, program and research priorities. The aim of our EGM was to systematically map published and ongoing studies (i.e. systematic reviews and randomized trials) on health and social care, and technological interventions that support older adults at home or in the community. We applied a Cochrane/Campbell sex/gender lens to assess gender inequalities at baseline and in outcomes of care. This EGM was the first in a series of maps on care for older adults, and was included in the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing Baseline Report.
