Assessment of Chronic Health Care

CHALLENGE

Evaluating complex interventions with multiple components, with highly variable intensity in the use of therapeutic instruments and interaction with many professionals and contexts, which are difficult to standardize.

OUR CONTRIBUTION

Development and application of a comprehensive online consensus tool bringing together a wide range of professionals.

New tools for the evaluation of chronic care programs

A guiding line was the incorporation of clinical and professional knowledge in the design of the chronic care model and strategies.

Participation of a large group of professionals in different waves and rounds that begin with a list of more than 100 indicators and finishes with a limited list of 17.
