Paige (King) Moorhouse is a clinician researcher in Geriatric Medicine and Internal Medicine at Dalhousie University. Dr. Moorhouse draws on her clinical experience and training in program development to inspire her research in vascular cognitive impairment, collaborative care, end-of-life care, frailty, executive function, and technology solutions for team-based care. She has authored several peer-reviewed publications and book chapters.
Dr. Moorhouse co-founded the PATH (Palliative and Therapeutic Harmonization) consortium and training program. The PATH is for frail older adults with advanced medical conditions, where the impact of interventional procedures on quality of life may be questioned. Dr. Moorhouse co-developed a specific process for teams for use in nursing homes-Collaborative Medical Evaluation (CME)- to help health professionals generate a comprehensive determination of health status that brings fitness and frailty to the foreground for care planning and end of life decision making.
Dr. Moorhouse has also developed an integrated online health record system for teams caring for older adults with complex medical issues. She designed and carried out a public service announcement campaign about the dangers of driving and dementia.
