Today and the Next Appointment

Chronic conditions require long-term management. When you see a patient with a chronic condition, and are you are creating a Care Plan, you should begin to build a mental picture of the care the patient will require in the next 12 months.

Try to think about the short-term (Today) and long-term (Next Appointment) activities that your patient will need.

Today and the Next Appointment also help keep things manageable for you and your patient. A long list of tasks and appointments can be overwhelming for patients. Try to keep tasks to one or two things.

We will work through some examples of this in our case studies.
