Contenuto

Although hospital care plays a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of severe acute disease, patients may have multiple chronic illnesses that are not directly related to the reason for admission. For some patients, admission offers a valuable opportunity to start appropriate management of chronic illnesses and to address preventative health issues. For other patients, however, attempts to intensify therapy for chronic diseases can cause more harm than benefit.
