Background: Chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases are growing at an alarming rate, especially in the aging population. People who have chronic disease spend a significant amount of time in self-management in out-of-hospital environments, in their homes and in their community settings. These patients have different disease statuses and management requirements, so providing personalized care is key.
Aim and scope: We aim to publish articles describing a personalized care approach to the diagnosis and treatment to chronically ill patients.
History: Personalised care is a collaborative process that should be used in chronic condition management in which patients, caregivers and healthcare providers identify and discuss problems caused by or related to the patient's condition, and then develop plans and goals to empower patients.
Cutting-edge research: Personalized care can improve aspects of physical health, mental health and the ability to self-manage conditions. Thus, a personalized care approach could greatly benefit patients with chronic conditions.
What kind of papers we are soliciting: We encourage the submission of manuscripts that describe a personalized care approach to the diagnosis and treatment to chronically ill patients.
