NICE NG 56 – Multimorbidity: clinical assessment and management

The  guideline itself covers optimising care for adults with multi-morbidity (multiple long-term conditions) by reducing treatment burden (poly-pharmacy and multiple appointments) and unplanned care.  It aims to improve quality of life by promoting shared decisions based on what is important to each person in terms of treatments, health priorities, lifestyle and goals.  The guideline sets out which people are most likely to benefit from an approach to care that takes account of multi-morbidity, how they can be identified and what the care involves.
