Abstract

The aim of this research project was to develop an implementation framework for the prevention and management of chronic diseases in general practice. Chronic diseases - or conditions as it is also commonly known, like Diabetes, Asthma, Cardiovascular Disease, etc., are persistent or recurring illnesses or impairments lasting for years that cannot be cured, however some can be prevented from becoming a chronic disease. Unfortunately, millions of chronic diseases sufferers worldwide end up dying prematurely and in many cases unnecessarily due to lack of appropriate care.
