Approach to the Patient with Multimorbidity – BMJ

What you need to know

For those with multimorbidity

  • Guidelines on single health conditions may not be applicable

  • Aggressive management of risk factors for future disease is often a major treatment burden and can be inappropriate

  • Assess whether patients may benefit from an approach to care that takes account of their multimorbidity

  • Consider all conditions and treatments simultaneously

  • Easier access to data about the absolute benefit of commonly prescribed treatments is needed
