History of neurological or psychiatric conditions increases the likelihood of developing more
People living with neurological or psychiatric conditions may have an increased likelihood of having a second such condition in the future, and their sex influences their risk, according to new ONDRI Aim 4 research.
A recently published study, by Colleen Maxwell et al, is Ontario’s largest, both in population size and length of time studied, and was also the first to examine the effect that being a man or woman has on the relationship between conditions.
Researchers from the University of Waterloo and the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Science (ICES), working within ONDRI’s Aim 4 framework, conducted this important work which can be used to inform health systems planning. This research work piqued the interest of publications such as Science Daily and Waterloo News.
