Sample text

A simple operational definition of multimorbidity includes at least two components: (1) the minimum number of conditions considered to be classified as ‘multimorbidity’ and (2) the conditions taken into account. In regard to the minimum number of conditions considered, the co-occurrence of two or more conditions is the operational definition most frequently used in the medical literature. However, cut-off counts of three, four and five long-term conditions have also been used or suggested by different authors.

Adapted from: Boyd CM and Fortin M. 2011. Most (but not all) authors have used the term multimorbidity to mean patients with multiple long-term conditions, while others (most notably Barbara Starfield) have suggested that acute conditions should not be ignored. However, restricting the definition to long-term conditions is more useful for most purposes, because it the fact that conditions endure over a prolonged period that leads to the accumulation of problems in one individual. In the context of multimorbidity, the definition of a long-term or chronic condition is not straightforward.

Vertically organized care chains that are in accordance with disease-oriented guidelines and disease-specific care management programmes may exaggerate these problems and may hamper good quality of care (see also Chapters 5 and 6). Driving factors in polypharmacy include an uncritical use of multiple guidelines in patients with multimorbidity; fragmentation of care, such as care by different specialists; and hospital systems that are not integrated with primary care. Also, patients with multimorbidity often feel overwhelmed as they have to manage their burden of both their diseases and treatments.
