    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    About one in five Canadians have suffered from a mental condition at some point in their lives. Like other health conditions, mental conditions represent an economic burden to society, and costs are often comparable to physical conditions such as heart disease. Expenditures on mental conditions and addictions for Canadian provinces in 2003/2004 were $6.6 billion, of which $5.5 billion was from public sources.

    Major psychiatric conditions are often associated with physical comorbidity - in particular, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and respiratory conditions. Reasons for this association are diverse, and not fully understood. Many health conditions increase the risk for a mental condition. Mental comorbidity can complicate help-seeking, diagnosis, and treatment, and it influences prognosis. Hence understanding the burden of mental conditions as a comorbid condition among those with physical morbidities is important.

    This report represents an assessment of a comprehensive set of factors associated with acute-care hospitalizations for mental conditions in Canada. The first part explores the overall burden of a mental condition as the most responsible condition (the condition considered most responsible for the hospitalization) and as a comorbid condition (a diagnosed condition other than the most responsible for the hospitalization) in acute-care hospitals in Canada. It presents the number of hospitalizations, the number of hospital days and the average length of stay of a hospitalization. In the second part, linked health survey and hospital data are used to describe the socioeconomic and lifestyle factor characteristics of patients who were admitted to an acute-care hospital with a mental condition within four years after responding to the survey.

  • Articles and reports: 81-595-M2008068
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Using major Statistics Canada data sources related to the education and training of Canadians, this publication presents a jurisdictional view of what we currently know on educating health workers to begin to address some critical questions facing Canadians today: Does Canada have enough interested individuals with the right skills who want to work in health? Does it have the infrastructure, capacity, and effective education system to ensure an adequate supply of health workers to meet future health care demands?

    As such, this report reveals some important information about what happens before, during and after health education. It focuses on interest in health occupations, the number of students taking and graduating from postsecondary health programs along with their socio-demographic characteristics and those of the faculty teaching these programs, the labour market experiences of recent graduates from these programs - including their mobility after graduation - as well as the ongoing participation of health workers in formal and informal training.

    Description:

    In 2003, more than 5 million Canadians, about 20% of the population aged 12 or older, reported using some type of alternative health care in the past year. Women were more likely than men to use alternative care. Use of alternative care tended to rise with income and education.

    Description:

    Seniors' health care use provides estimates of the proportions of seniors who consulted medical professionals, took various types of medication, were hospitalized and received home care services.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In 1998/99, 3.8 million adults reported having used the services of an alternative practitioner in the previous year. This was not a rejection of conventional health care, as users of alternative practitioners were more likely than non-users to have a regular physician and also to have consulted specialists.
