Chronic disease management involves diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment, but also depends greatly on a patient’s ability to practice self-care. At the Cleveland Clinic, we recognize the need to help our patients help themselves. This one-day summit brings together experts from medicine, case management, nursing, social work, psychology, addiction, and more to achieve what the title suggests: promote growth and change in the most complex, challenging and difficult of patient populations. The summit will feature keynote addresses, didactic sessions, break-out skills-based workshops, and educational resources, while offering continuing education credits for physicians, nurses, social workers, and other clinicians.
