Health State Descriptions for Canadians

Journals and periodicals: 82-619-M


This series examines the functional limitations - physical, emotional and social - that affect Canadians with various diseases and health conditions. These descriptions and classifications are the first step in a new approach to measuring the health of Canadians that examines what factors are adversely affecting population health and how to address them.

This information is primarily intended to document the disease classifications used in the Population Health Impact of Disease in Canada (PHI) research program. It also provides health professionals, advocacy groups, and individual Canadians with an overview of how living with various diseases or health conditions affects day-to-day functioning throughout the various phases of disease progression and treatment.
