About this event
Join us for a month of interactive broadcasts designed to address the primary care challenges of diagnosing and managing chronic conditions at a time when COVID-19 has thrown out the rule book.
The NHS focus on COVID-19 care has resulted in huge ongoing disruption to the delivery of chronic care in the UK. Chronic Conditions Month 2021 – run in May by the Chronic Conditions Faculty in association with a group of UK charities – comprises a vast range of broadcasts designed to help HCPs get back on track as well as addressing the everyday management requirements of 8 individual conditions both in their own right and in the complex ways in which they can interact with each other.
Simple advice based on current practice guidelines together with practical hints and tips on how to assess and manage individual cases will be available both as live, interactive sessions as well as on demand afterwards.
