The new clinical paradigm

The New Clinical Paradigm

“The predominant acute disease paradigm is an anachronism. It is shaped on a 19th century notion of illness as a disruption of the normal state produced by a foreign presence or external trauma, e.g. infection or injury. …..Under this model acute care is that which directly addresses the threat. ….

In fact, modern epidemiology shows that the prevalent health problems of today (defined both in terms of cost and health impact) revolve around chronic illness. Kane (2002)

The new clinical paradigm1
The New Clinical Paradigm

“While the global disease burden has been shifting towards chronic conditions, health systems have not evolved to meet this changing demand. Care is fragmented, focused on acute and emergent symptoms, and often provided without the benefit of complete medical information” WHO (2002) [1]

New view? The Diabetes NSF

Care planning

‘A care plan is at the heart of a partnership approach to care and a central part of effective care management. The process of agreeing a care plan offers people active involvement in deciding, agreeing and owning how their diabetes is to be managed’

Measurement of Outcomes & Feedback

  • Personal health services have a relatively greater impact on severity (including death) than on incidence. As inequities in severity of health problems (including disability, death, and co-morbidity) are even greater than are inequities in incidence of health problems, appropriate health services have a major role to play in reducing inequities in health.
