Canadian iCare-PD


This study will implement the iCARE-PD model which consists of an approach by health providers, to support patients through the challenges of their disease and facilitate their access to health resources in the community. The iCARE-PD promotes self-management skills (i.e. e.g. to improve swallowing and speech by joining speech therapy sessions and doing vocal exercises at home, to improve balance by joining a exercises group or a fall prevention clinic) that will simplify the use of available specialized services with little increase in resources and cost. To provide more effective integration of care, technology will be explored to share health information using electronically delivered study questionnaires.
