Effets des tendances à long-terme de l’obésité sur l’utilisation de soins de santé au Québec

Résumé court: 

Using a dynamic microsimulation model to project health and obesity prevalence in the Québec population indicates that a counterfactual elimination of obesity would reduce (annually and over the 2010-2050 period) by 864,055 the number of short-term hospitalization nights and by 665,000 the number of consultations with general practitioners and specialists, but would also lead to a significant increase in the number of insititutionalized individuals. It also appears from the analysis that obesity is responsible for 2.6% of health spending in Quebec and that it leads to 14% higher health care spending over a lifetime.
