14.6.2013 National population study of neurological conditions in Canada will provide its final report in 2014

The National Population Study of Neurological Conditions in Canada commenced in 2009. The purpose of the study is to improve current knowledge of the incidence, prevalence, risk factors, use of health services as well as economic costs associated with neurological conditions projected over the next 20 years. The study is intended to provide a better understanding of these conditions and their impact on individuals, families, caregivers and health systems. The study is due to issue its final comprehensive report in 2014, European Year of the Brain. The study represents a groundbreaking piece of work with significant implications for health systems in developed countries as they deal with the growing challenge of neurological disease. The NAI keenly awaits the publication of the report.
