Brief description This longitudinal study aims to identify determinants of musculoskeletal and cardiovascular diseases, cognitive decline, mortality and health service utilisation with ageing in a cohort of well-characterised older women, whose health has been monitored since 1998. This study is unique in that it will have followed patients from mean age 75 to 90 years with longitudinal clinical data collected and complete ascertainment of health service utilisation through the WA Data Linkage System.
