PC DATA (Primary Care Dementia Assessment & Treatment Algorithm) is a set of clinical tools and algorithms designed to help family physicians and primary care healthcare providers to understand and apply best practices in dementia care as outlined in the Canadian Consensus Conference Guidelines, on the diagnosis and Treatment of Dementia.
The algorithms and tools were developed through a grant provided to the PCDATA team through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. Feedback from the original PCDATA project has lead to the creation of this web-based educational platform to provide access to the PCDATA content to all primary care providers.
This project was developed with support from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the Alzheimer Society of Toronto and Alzheimer Society of Ontario. These Self-Learning programs have been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 1 Mainpro+ credits.
