Chronic Diseases and Conditions


This literature review was produced for the Center for Health Care Strategies by the Center for Health Services Research and Policy at The George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services. Its purpose is to provide background on the range of services and supports identified in literature on chronic conditions, disability, and their consequences as well as by consumers, and disability and patient advocates. Formal literature reviews were conducted, and an exhaustive review of Web-based sources of information was undertaken. This analysis provides useful information necessary to identify potential measurement "domains" in an effort to examine national and state progress toward community integration.
