Managing Multicomplexity in the Homebound Patient
Description

The home-based primary care (HBPC) patient population often presents with multiple chronic diseases, producing treatment challenges for providers. In addition, psychiatric and functional issues can impact clinical care. Unfortunately, optimal guidelines for managing patients who are elderly, frail, and multi-complex do not exist, leaving providers with a lack of clear direction on how to approach treating these patients in the home.

Objectives
In this course, you will learn a model for treating these patients, as well as medication management considerations for four chronic diseases commonly present in homebound patients. Upon completion, you will be able to do the following:
  1. Recognize the challenges of treating homebound patients with multiple chronic diseases.
  2. Apply a management model for treating patients with multiple chronic diseases.
  3. Describe treatment and medication management approaches for four of the main chronic diseases found in homebound patients: diabetes mellitus (DM), congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and chronic kidney disease (CKD).
  4. Identify challenges faced by caregivers of patients with multiple chronic diseases and resources to support them.
