New chronic disease management program

A new program has been created to improve the health of UC Davis patients with chronic illnesses, mainly by helping them assume a greater role in managing their conditions.

The Chronic Disease Management Program is an expansion of "In Charge and In Control," a program aimed at diabetes patients of the Family Practice Clinic. Since it was established two years ago, the program has enrolled 300 people with diabetes and provided them with more means to increase the self-management of their disease. One of the central ideas underlying In Charge and In Control is that in helping patients assume greater management of their illness, they will experience fewer problems and require fewer visits to the doctor.

UC Davis Medical Center is basing the Chronic Disease Management Program on the principles and methods of In Charge and In Control, with the intent of extending the same help to other patients with diabetes, as well as other chronic diseases, such as asthma and congestive heart failure. Jim Nuovo, professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, is the director of the program.
