Professor Harry Shannon

The aging of the population is now well known and governments will likely encourage more people aged 55-64 and older to remain in the workforce. Since older workers may be less able to cope with the demands of work, the occupational health and safety (OHS) implications must be considered.
The talk will outline the changing age structure of workforces. It will then outline the normal changes in health that occur with chronological age, and discuss the implications for OHS in the increasing number of older workers. I will pay attention to both physical health and cognitive and mental health. The talk will conclude by noting gaps in our knowledge, and will present some suggestions for future research.

Dr Mieke Koehoorn

This plenary panel will host CIHR Research Chairs in Gender, Work and Health: Drs Peter Smith, Joy McDermid, Angela Colantonio, Allison Williams, and Mieke Koehoorn. After giving an introduction to the Gender, Work and Health chairs program and goals, the panelists will discuss key issues in gender and health research: 1) How is gender/sex incorporated in research questions?, 2) how is gender/sex addressed or measured in study designs and/or analyses?, and 3) how does integrating gender/sex lead to new discoveries or insights? This session will end with fifteen minutes of audience Q&A moderated by Dr. Koehoorn.
