Contemporary Diagnostic Techniques and Procedures
On-site in Tartu 1 - 12 August 2022
Multimorbidity is increasingly becoming the norm, particularly in the older population, and presents enormous challenges for patients and their doctors. Diagnosis has important implications for multimorbid patient care, research, and medical policy. The diagnostic process is a complex, patient-centered, collaborative activity that involves information gathering and clinical reasoning to determine a patient's health problem
Multimorbidity, defined as the presence of multiple chronic conditions in an individual, is highly prevalent in clinical practice today. For people with multimorbidity, consideration needs to be given to individualising care and designing it around each person's needs and priorities.
The course includes biochemical-, immunological-, genetic laboratory and instrumental assessments, theory discussions, practical measurements and interpretation. Additionally, multimorbid patiens' case-based discussions and treatment procedures performed or viewed as well.
