Avoidable hospital use of people with dementia, how can primary care help?

About this event

The care of people with dementia is a WHO public health priority. People with dementia use health services twice as much as people without dementia. Interdisciplinary primary care such as family practice groups and continuity of care with the family physician have been proposed as an ideal approach to managing the growing and complex population of people with dementia, but evidence of their effect is lacking, particularly in terms of equity of access to services.

Through several Canadian and international research projects, the ROSA (Research on Organization of Healthcare Services for Alzheimer’s) team will present the current state of knowledge on this burning and increasingly important issue in our aging societies.

Presenters:

Dr. Claire Godard-Sebillotte, MD, PhD

Dr. Godard-Sebilotte is an Assistant Professor at the Division of Geriatrics (Department of Medicine, McGill University) and geriatrician at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC).

Dr. Nadia Sourial, PhD

Dr. Isabelle Vedel, MD-MPH, PhD

Dr. Vedel is an associate professor in the department of Family Medicine at McGill University and a health service researcher. She co-leads the ROSA team, part of the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging.
