Under the leadership of Dr. William Molloy, the Geriatric Research Group is committed to the development and testing of methodologies for the assessment and treatment of dementia, the education and promotion of the elderly, of individuals' rights and autonomy, and of ethical medical practice. Established in 1988, the GRG is affiliated with both the Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation and McMaster University's Department of Medicine.
Research and development initiatives include such areas as drug prescribing and detailing, clinical drug trials, advance health care directives, and capacity assessment. The GRG conducts workshops on various issues germane to the elderly, and is committed to the education and training of a wide variety of health care professionals.
Two days a week the GRG operates a referral based, outpatient Memory Clinic, servicing patients and their families throughout Southwestern Ontario.
As a practicing Geriatrician, Dr. William Molloy is also Director of the Memory Clinic and holds a teaching appointment as Professor of Medicine in the Division of Geriatric Medicine at McMaster University.
