Improving Care and Support for People with Multiple Chronic Health Conditions in Ontario

People who have multiple chronic conditions have complex needs, but they often receive care that is fragmented and ineffective. This project convened a panel of Hamilton-area citizens to discuss the challenges faced by those with multiple chronic health conditions, and potential options for improving the situation. Options considered by the panel included changing the way care is organized and delivered for people with multiple chronic health conditions, supporting them to engage in shared decision-making with their healthcare providers, and supporting them to better manage their own care.
