Multimorbidity: Current challenges and research opportunities

Multimorbidity has emerged as one of the greatest challenges facing health services, both presently and in the coming decades.

Addressing the population and service challenges presented by multiple long-term conditions is a local and national priority and is a major strategic priority for research funding bodies.

We are hosting three webinars on multiple long-term conditions. The aim of the series is to offer a platform to researchers, healthcare professionals and members of the public to learn about this topic and identify ideas for future research projects.
