Toolkit for Implementing the Chronic Care Model in an Academic Environment


Toolkit for Implementing the Chronic Care Model in an Academic Environment


This toolkit provides materials that explain the concepts, change strategies, tools, and resources to teach medical residents and improve care for patients with chronic illness in an academic setting. It can assist academic health care environments in implementing the Chronic Care Model.

Depending on one's knowledge of the Chronic Care Model, the site can be easily navigated to advance an organization's progress. The lessons learned by the organizations involved in the Academic Chronic Care Collaborative provide a guide to others implementing the model. Adapting and replicating their best practices saves time and reduces the cost of implementation.

Each section is self contained; readers may navigate the site based on interest and familiarity with the model or principles:

  • Engaging leadership
  • Harnessing the academic culture
  • Putting the Chronic Care Model into practice
  • Health professions education for chronic care
