Improving Quality of Life
|National Population Health Study of Neurological Conditions |
This first-ever national population health study of neurological conditions in Canada will provide a clear picture of the depth and breadth of Parkinson’s disease and other neurological conditions in Canada and the impact on Canadians. It is a necessary first step towards helping governments and organizations plan and implement appropriate programs, services and support for Canadians living with neurological conditions.
A Brain Strategy for Canada
A national brain strategy will bring a comprehensive and co-ordinated national approach to issues that are important to Canadians living with a brain condition: research; prevention; caregiver support; income security; integrated care and support; genetic discrimination; and public awareness and education.
