The Program has strong international collaborations throughout Europe and North America, most prominent and enduring of which is participation in the international effort to create "multi-domain" third generation assessment systems under the auspices of the interRAI Research Collaborative.

The Program specialises in multi-national and multi-site studies, with over 30 organisations participating in its research programs over the past 5 years.
