Multimorbidity: clinical assessment and management

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

Multimorbidity—the development of concurrent long-term health conditions—is associated with a variety of factors, particularly increasing age. Multimorbidity can result from various physical health conditions and also as a combination with mental health conditions like depression. Responsible for reduced quality of life, higher mortality, and ultimately a greater burden on health services, appropriate management of multimorbidity is a necessity for the NHS.

This Guidelines summary covers approaches to optimisation of care, reducing treatment burden, and improving quality of life in patients with multimorbidity.
