New analysis from the Canadian Institute for Health Information
(CIHI) shows that 17 per cent of patients, or more than 4,000
people, in Ontario complex continuing care (CCC) were between the
ages of 19 and 64 in 2005-2006. These patients represent a younger
generation relative to the majority of CCC patients (who are 75 and
older) and present different clinical characteristics and pathways
through CCC compared with older patients.
