The prevalence of chronic disease is rising and many health systems are now seeking to improve the way they respond to the needs of patients with chronic illnesses.

The prevalence of chronic disease is rising and many health systems are now seeking to improve the way they respond to the needs of patients with chronic illnesses.

The King's Fund and the Commonwealth Fund sponsored a seminar bringing together leading policymakers, clinicians and academics from England and the USA to share experiences.

The seminar looked at the policy context in each country for chronic disease management, identified facilitators and barriers to success and explored methods for evaluating chronic disease management programmes. This report from the seminar includes six case studies of chronic disease improvement programmes.

Six case studies of chronic disease improvement programmes – three from each country – were presented at the seminar to illustrate the range of initiatives and options available. These case studies are available for download below.
