National Population Health Study of Neurological Conditions
This first-ever national population health study of neurological conditions in Canada provides 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.
