Topic: Trajectories of health system use and survival for community-dwelling persons with dementia: a population-based analysis from Ontario, Canada
Foundational to planning appropriate health system supports for older persons with dementia in community and long-term care settings are ongoing, comparable and accurate estimates of the prevalence and incidence of dementia across Canada, as well as associated patterns of health services.
In this course of this presentation I will:
review the strengths and limitations of different approaches to identifying older persons with dementia in health administrative data
present findings from some recent work comparing trends in health system use between community-dwelling older adults with dementia and matched controls
discuss the opportunities and challenges to health services research on dementia.
