Time & chronic disease management

Time & chronic disease management


Principal investigator

Developing ways of managing chronic disease that are patient centred and focussed on prevention is proving a difficult challenge for contemporary health policy. It is requiring a major reorientation from the mainstream culture and practices of the present health system.

To contribute to this reorientation, we propose to look at time and time use in chronic disease management in order to inform policy responses to the rising tide of chronic disease that exists today. By gaining an understanding of time and its social arrangement in chronic disease management, we hope to make an innovative contribution to the policy dialogue about health system reform for better chronic disease management.
