Chronic disease comorbidity: Challenging healthcare providers to innovate
Bonner, Ann (2016) Chronic disease comorbidity: Challenging healthcare providers to innovate. In Renal Society of Australasia 44th Annual Conference, 20-22 June 2016, Gold Coast, Qld.
Typically those with chronic kidney disease (CKD) also have other chronic diseases, however, practitioners tend to focus on one disease or even one symptom at a time rather than focus on the whole person. This results in people attending a number of appointments with a range of healthcare providers. There is emerging evidence internationally that innovative nurse-led services directed towards people with multiple chronic diseases improves access to care, achieves clinical targets and patient-reported outcomes, reduces hospitalisations and emergency department presentations, and has high levels of patient satisfaction. This presentation will present evidence about new service delivery models and why nurses are in an ideal situation to provide a holistic approach to chronic disease comorbidity.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
