Multimorbidity Webinar Series - Diabetes and Setting Priorities among Comorbidities
Multimorbidity is the norm and not the exemption among people with long-term conditions. (World Health Organization, 2016) Managing multimorbidity is a real challenge in general practice, conferring considerable burden to patients and to the healthcare system. It can result in fragmented care, over-testing and competing priorities. Patients with multimorbidity frequently report worse experiences of care. Because education and guidelines focus on managing single conditions, healthcare professionals may be inclined to overlook patient-centred measures of health-related quality of life, like pain.
In Vivo Academy, an accredited provider of independent medical education, present a series of four 1-hour live webinars entitled "Managing multimorbidity: navigating guidelines, polypharmacy, patient priorities and negative outcomes", covering topics including diabetes, cognitive decline, frailty, adjusting doses and drug burden index in a case-based, interactive format.
The first of the series "Diabetes and setting priorities among comorbidities" has been scheduled on Wednesday 23 March 2022 at 7:30-8:30 pm (AEDT), with Clinical Associate Professor Gary Kilov (The University of Melbourne, Department of General Practice) as Speaker and Emeritus Professor Mieke van Driel (General Practice Clinical Unit, The University of Queensland) as Facilitator.
