PC DATA (Primary Care Dementia Assessment & Treatment Algorithm) is a set of clinical tools and algorithms designed to help clinicians to understand better understand and apply Canadian Consensus Care Guidelines. The algorithms and accompanying tools were developed through a Canadian Insitute of Health Research grant. Lead by Dr. Dallas Seitz MD, PhD, FRCPC. Feedback from the original PCDATA project has lead to the creation of a web-based educational platform that provides access to the content to all primary care providers.
The 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.
