Brain Health Survey

Brain Health Survey

Before agreeing to participate in this survey, please read through the information below which includes an explanation of this study, as well as its purpose and procedures.  Also described is your right to withdraw from the study at any time.

In Canada, there is an urgent need to better understand awareness of brain health and disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, from a broad group of stakeholders.  Findings from this survey will contribute to realizing the unique nature of a local environment, key and emerging issues, and policy limitations, related to brain health.  With this information, the IFA, together with other collaborators and partners, hopes to improve the approach to brain health conditions through health promotion, prevention, treatment, care and rehabilitation.

This survey is being completed on behalf of the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) as part of the Improving Awareness of Brain Health and Disorders in Canada initiative.  IFA is a not-for-profit organization with its headquarters in Toronto, ON.
