Abstract

The book systematically examines some of the key issues involved in the care of those with chronic diseases. It synthesises the evidence on what we know works (or does not) in different circumstances. From an international perspective, it addresses the prerequisites for effective policies and management of chronic disease. Taking a whole systems approach, the book: describes the burden of chronic disease in Europe, explores the economic case for investing in chronic disease management, examines key challenges posed by the growing complexity in healthcare including prevention, the role of self-management, the healthcare workforce, and decision-support, examines systems for financing chronic care and analyses the prerequisites for effective policies for chronic care.
