Please read the following article before the tweet chat:

Salisbury C, Man MS, Bower P, Guthrie B, Chaplin K, Gaunt DM, Brookes S, Fitzpatrick B, Gardner C, Hollinghurst S, Lee V. Management of multimorbidity using a patient-centred care model: a pragmatic cluster-randomised trial of the 3D approach. The Lancet. 2018 Jul 7;392(10141):41-50. 

Discussion questions:

#Q1 What are your views the 3D intervention, its content and application in general practice?

#Q2 Health-related quality of life was not different between groups. Why might this be?

#Q3 Not every patient received the 3D intervention in the same way. What impact do you think that will have had on the outcome?

#Q4 What do the findings mean for the patient-centred care model?

#Q5 Are the existing international guidelines on management of multimorbidity fit for purpose?


This tweet chat is now in the past. Please see a transcript of the chat here.
