Chronic diseases are conditions which are long-lasting, persistent, and often require special therapy, education and training for the individual with the chronic disease to maintain health. Health care providers play a vital role in educating and supporting individuals in the management of their chronic condition.

Chronic Conditions and Diseases Prevention and Management (CCDPM)
