Less disruptive care needed for the chronically ill

12th August 2009

Researchers from Newcastle University have said that patients with multiple long-term conditions need to be given better coordinated healthcare if their outcomes are to improve.

Writing in the BMJ, they point out that the burden of chronic illness falls not only on health services but also on patients and carers, as the work of managing chronic disease shifts from clinic to home. They want to see ‘minimally disruptive medicine', which will tailor treatment regimens to the realities of patients' daily lives.
