We are organizing a Special Issue on healthcare service research for chronic disease management, and on epidemiology for chronic disease prevention in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed, scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information about the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
While the situation we are facing today with the emergence and rapid spread of COVID-19 virus has led to an increase in interest in health concerns related to global pandemics, concerns related to the worldwide rise of chronic diseases, alongside aging population and steady changes in lifestyle, have been well known for quite a while. Chronic diseases are common, cause long-term health problems, require lifelong healthcare, and bear tremendous costs. To address growing healthcare demands, new healthcare delivery models, often driven by developments in technology, are emerging, promising optimization of healthcare and minimization of healthcare costs. Simultaneously, public health efforts allocated to health promotion and disease prevention also lessen chronic disease burden. Continuous and diverse research in chronic disease management and prevention is paramount to support further improvements in healthcare, advance our knowledge of disease prevention, and thus tackle chronic disease burden. This Special Issue aims to highlight problems and solutions of chronic disease management and prevention addressed and exemplified utilizing various quantitative research methods.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to healthcare service research for chronic disease management and epidemiology for chronic disease prevention. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
