About this book


Chronic Disease Management presents primary care clinicians and allied health professionals with helpful ways to care for patients with conditions such as diabetes, asthma, congestive heart failure, and chronic pain. To effectively and efficiently provide care for patients with chronic diseases, a professional must learn proven methods for treating the most common conditions that they see in daily practice. Jim Nuovo, MD, handpicked internationally renowned contributors to ensure that the clearly written guide is a valuable tool for all health professionals who treat chronic diseases. Visit templates for providers, detailing what patient data should be collected and measured during office visits, are one of the many benefits the reader will take away. Other innovative approaches, including registry development, group visits, and shared medical appointments are detailed as well. Emphasis is placed on the use of action plans and educational resources for promoting patient self-management. Chapters are structured to help physicians quickly adopt evidence-based management techniques specific for each condition, such as the implementation of medical regimens.
