Though the whole (multi-morbidity) is more than the sum of the parts (co-morbidities), it is sometimes necessary to consider a specific index condition during patient-provider consultations. The index disease prioritised by patients depends on which chronic health condition is predominant in their lives at a given point of time. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was the index condition in the context, or backdrop, of multi-morbidity in the APCOM pilot study. This study was part of Sameera’s PhD at the UNSW School of Public Health and Community Medicine, completed in January 2018. The seminar will present an overview of the development, implementation and mixed-method evaluation of a novel self-management education program for patients with COPD and co-morbidities in Sydney general practice.
