The component of Leadership Training and Research aims to train new leaders in gerontology and support pilot projects with non-governmental organisations (NGOs). 30 CADENZA Fellows from different disciplines (such as social work, nursing, allied health, rehabilitation engineering, psychology, optometry and medicine) have been trained, and 18 projects on new service models and practices, such as pain management, insomnia treatment, bereavement care, art therapy and continence management, have been launched.
