The term “multimorbid” refers to co-occurrence of two or more chronic medical or psychiatric conditions. The majority of residents in post-acute and long-term care facilities are considered multimorbid, and more than 50% of older adults have 3 or more chronic conditions. Management of multimorbid patients is complex, with limited acknowledgement in Clinical Practice Guidelines. Clinicians must learn to approach multimorbid patients with attention to best available evidence, risks, benefits, and burdens of interventions and overall goals of care for the patient and family caregivers. Effective management includes a systemic approach to which includes evaluation of patient preferences, application of best available evidence, estimations of prognosis, consideration of treatment feasibility, and optimization of therapies and care plans. This webinar will utilize sample cases to illustrate this approach to multimorbid patients and will also use available evidence and prognostic tools to assist the practitioner in a post-acute and long-term care setting.
