PARADISE - Psychosocial factors relevant to brain disorders in Europe
- Sprecher: Prof. Dr. Alarcos Cieza
- Einrichtung: Institut für Medizinische Informationsverarbeitung, Biometrie und Epidemiologie
- Förderung: seit 2010 bis 2013
The objective of PARADISE is to develop and test an innovative approach to collect clinical data on the psychosocial difficulties that people experience when they suffer from brain disorders. The key to this approach — which we call ‘horizontal epidemiology — is that the problems people have to deal with are not linked to the specific diagnosis of the condition they have but are actually problems that people with very different brain conditions — we look at dementia, depression, epilepsy, migraine, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson´s Disease, schizophrenia, stroke and substance use disorders — have in common. If we are right about this, this way of collecting information would profoundly change how we organize and deliver services to people with brain disorders across Europe, improving their lives and life opportunities.
