Grant aims to improve care of chronic illness

UC Davis School of Medicine has received a three-year federal grant to improve the training of students in the care of patients with chronic illness through all four years of the school's curriculum.

Awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the grant will introduce a key change in students' training, starting in fall 2004. Once a quarter, beginning in their first year, students will make supervised home visits to patients who have one or more chronic illnesses. The "target" chronic conditions for the grant are the most common chronic illnesses in the United States: diabetes, congestive heart failure, arthritis, chronic lung disease (including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and asthma), chronic coronary disease and depression, which often co-exists with the other illnesses. n
