Long-term conditions are increasingly prevalent, both in the UK and globally. Conditions include chronic kidney disease, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular diseases, mental health and cancer. Many people live for many years with a LTC, creating new opportunities and challenges for knowledge and research. Led by Professor Paula Ormandy, research conducted by KH&P aims to improve people’s ability to manage their long-term conditions and improve their quality of life as well as reducing demand on health and social services. A key focus of work in this theme is transdisciplinary research bringing together digital and social media expertise with clinicians and health information specialists to aid self-management.
