Event description

Description


Multimorbidity is now the clinical norm within primary care. It is a complex phenomenon requiring multi-faceted strategies and interventions to improve outcomes. This event will showcase the multimorbidity work across all CLAHRCs and to stimulate further discussion and initiate cross-CLAHRC collaborations to take multimorbidity research forward and devise novel solutions to tackle multimorbidity in the UK.

The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity for researchers, clinicians’ and other colleagues from the 13 CLAHRCs to discuss current research being conducted and future challenges and opportunities in the field of multi morbidity research.
