Models of care

Given the increasing incidence of chronic diseases across the world, it has become essential to search for more effective strategies to prevent and manage these diseases. Students will become acquainted with different models of care, such as the chronic care model, integrative care model and preventive care model. Examples, such as the Multidisciplinary Integrated Care model will be discussed. Students will learn and understand the use of the care models and how they can assist healthcare teams to demonstrate effective, relevant solutions to this growing challenge. Nowadays, medical organizations are under incredibly high pressure in order to manage 'clinical processes' which have grown in complexity and magnitude during the last decades.
