CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT-Crowley
Chronic diseases are defined as health conditions that last for a long period of time and require ongoing medical attention and/or limit activities of daily living. Some can be immediately life-threatening, such as heart disease and stroke. Others linger over time and need intensive management, such as diabetes.
Medical screening can be vital in checking for diseases and health conditions before there are any signs of symptoms. When problems are detecting early, they are easier to treat.
