Dr. Boustani is interested in enhancing the quality of the current health care system to accommodate the needs of patients with cognitive impairment, both in the general population, and particularly for those with dementia. His work on the development of a multifaceted dementia care system crosses various health care settings including ambulatory, primary and secondary care, hospital environment, and long-term care facilities.

He is involved in various large projects aimed at identifying the barriers to development of an enhanced system in primary care (PREVENT, PRISM-PC, and I-NEEDS studies), the hospital (PMD, e-CHAMP, 3Ds, and POCD projects), and in long-term care (ALFA and Dementia Care studies).

“I can’t stop seeing patients,” he said, “because they are the source of my innovation.”
