Projet lauréat de l’appel à projets de recherche sur les innovations 2018-2019.
Patients with dementia dwelling in the community express different unmet needs. Case management (CM) has been proposed as a solution to these challenges. It represents a collaborative work of family doctors and nurses and is a key innovation of the Quebec Alzheimer Plan. Different models of CM exist: all family physicians manage the patients with dementia (classic model) or the treating physician refers patients to a family physician with an expertise in dementia (expert model). The objective of the research project is to describe the needs in two CM models and to conduct a quality improvement initiative to address them better.
