Improvements to the living conditions for indigenous populations of Quebec’s far North have caused a significant increase in life expectancy, leading to new factors in morbidity, including Alzheimer’s disease and all other major neurocognitive disorders. Faced with a significant shortfall in tools and resources, the Ministry of Health and Social Services requested the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal and the Centre of Excellence on Longevity to pool their resources to develop a strategy for knowledge transfer and cultural adaptation to address Alzheimer’s issues in these territories.
> General: With the help of the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal to secure the transfer of knowledge derived from provincial work and regional experiences to the indigenous territories of Quebec’s far North.
