The impact of poor mental health on health and health service use outcomes for older women with multimorbidity.
This project will examine the role of poor mental health in health, and healthcare outcomes for older women with multimorbidity. In particular, we will examine whether poor mental health contributes to poorer physical health outcomes for these women. The project will link data from a range of administrative sources (e.g. the Admitted Patient Data Collection, Medicare Benefits Scheme, Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, and National Death) to self-reported survey data for the 1921-1926 and 1946-1951 cohorts.
