Palliative Care in Chronic Conditions
Patients who are living with chronic conditions experience multiple symptoms. Poorly managed symptoms often cause disease exacerbation – leading to hospitalization and increased debility.
Symptom prevention or palliative care – offers patients the ability to engage in meaningful daily activities. Palliative care should be implemented at the onset of a chronic diagnosis and intensifies as disease progresses – preventing symptoms and promoting quality of life.
The Multiple Chronic Conditions Resource Center provides health care professionals with FREE resources to support the complex care needs of the largest, fastest growing and costliest U.S. patient population – those living with MCCs.
NEW eBook on the Integration of Palliative Care in the Management of Chronic Conditions is now available.
COMING SOON – Patient Portal to access FREE resources and education on chronic symptomatic conditions.
