Moderation... At A Much Lower Cost

By: News Canada

(NC)-Seniors often take too much medication, a practice which has a negative impact on their quality of life and is extremely expensive for the health care system. Michel Préville and his collaborators at the Université de Sherbrooke will study the individual and environmental factors affecting seniors' consumption of psychotropic drugs in order to identify persons at risk and develop a prevention strategy designed to ensure seniors' autonomy and quality of life.

Dr. Préville's research is being funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). CIHR is Canada's preeminent health research catalyst and is funded by the government of Canada. An exciting new concept, CIHR is modernizing and transforming the health research enterprise in Canada.
