Chronic Disease Management (CDM) has recently gained national attention in the media. For many of us, (about 50% of the Canadian
adult population) chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer or high blood pressure, have seriously impacted our lives, and the lives of
our families and friends. Growing understanding of the long term effects of chronic illness has led many jurisdictions in Canada to take proactive and preventive measures in chronic disease management (CDM) versus the reactive methods of episodic treatments in the acute care setting.
