Context

The Centre of Excellence on Longevity supports the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal in deploying Phase 2 of the Ministerial Initiative on Alzheimer’s Disease and other major neurocognitive disorders. In addition to its advisory role, it makes use of innovative actions to which it contributes. By placing elderly people at the heart of the treatment toolkit, the methodology proposed by the Centre of Excellence on Longevity makes it possible both to:

> Adapt treatment models for chronic diseases to the specific characteristic and conditions of elderly patients; and

> Integrate them into a more broadly defined strategy with an approach adapted and coordinated for all first line stakeholders.

 

Objectives

> To coordinate the action plan for Phase 2 of the Ministerial Initiative on Alzheimer’s Disease and other major neurocognitive disorders to support managers in leading the local delivery of the Alzheimer’s Initiative.

> Supporting first line clinicians, equipping them with the tools they need, training, and defining the responsibilities of the various stakeholders who engage with patients and their loved ones.
