Dementia care in rural China

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Chen, Shulin, Lisa L. Boyle, Yeates Conwell, Helen Chiu, Lydia W. Li, and Shuiyuan Xiao. 2013. "Dementia care in rural China." Mental Health in Family Medicine, 10(3): 133-141.

Dementia is a major cause of disability and has immense cost implications for the individual suffering from the condition, family caregivers and society. Given the high prevalence of dementia in China with its enormous and rapidly expanding population of elderly adults, it is necessary to develop and test approaches to the care for patients with this disorder. The need is especially great in rural China where access to mental healthcare is limited, with the task made more complex by social and economic reforms over the last 30 years that have transformed the Chinese family support system, family values and health delivery systems. Evidence-based collaborative care models for dementia, depression and other chronic diseases that have been developed in some Western countries serve as a basis for discussion of innovative approaches in the management of dementia in rural China, with particular focus on its implementation in the primary care system.

Country of focus: China.
