GAGE-BD will integrate existing data from across the globe on older adult bipolar disorder and aims to close gaps in our current understanding of symptom development across the adult lifespan.
By looking at demographic and socio-economic variables and honing in on areas such as cognition and medical burden across multiple datasets, the hope is to be able to identify those at greatest risk for worsening of symptoms and decline in functioning so that treatments plans may be modified to anticipate and accommodate these changes.
