Abstract

Nous utilisons des données d’enquête sur les personnes avec incapacités, jumelées avec les données de la Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ) sur les dépenses en médicaments, afin de documenter le rôle joué par l’aide formelle et informelle dans la prescription et la consommation de médicaments. Nous nous intéressons d’une part à l’association entre l’aide et la dépense pharmaceutique annuelle totale, et d’autre part à celle entre l’aide et le nombre de prescriptions, nouvelles et renouvelées. L’hypothèse testée est que l’aide au patient peut faciliter l’adhérence au traitement, ce qui peut augmenter la consommation de médicaments. De plus, les médecins peuvent se sentir plus à l’aise de prescrire des médicaments s’ils déterminent que le patient peut être aidé. Nous trouvons une relation positive forte et relativement robuste entre l’aide, en particulier celle provenant des CLSC et de la famille, et la prescription et la consommation de médicaments. Cette relation est intrigante et soulève un nombre de questions intéressantes pour la recherche future.
