Chronic disease management The background Bob Lewin Professor of Rehabilitation Presentations at - C ARE AND E DUCATION R ESEARCH G ROUP
At the Department of Health someone had noticed a problem. The number of people with a chronic condition has almost doubled in 30 years……. 35% 21% 60% of adults
…around 50% of all bed use is for chronic disease…. 50% of admissions are accounted for by 3% of diseases
* * ! CMO Liam Donaldson …and it is going to get worse! Change in ethnic mix Ageing population - greater chronicity & fewer to pay. low levels of activity obesitysmokingdrink? Increasing number of people surviving fatal events. or disease or congenital conditions
Luckily some other people had been thinking about it …the Chronic Care Model by Ed Wagner.
PCTs need to work with Acute Care Trusts to develop integrated approaches. A key issue is the sharing of incentives to promote high quality care. The Expert Patient programme NHS Direct Digital TV Evidence based guidelines incorporated in IT systems NSFs, elderly, mental health, CHD, etc. multidisciplinary team in primary care. risk stratification modern matrons and case management strategic partnerships local authorities community and voluntary organisations Software to support care planning, risk stratification, and monitoring quality The intention is to start rebuilding healthcare around chronic rather than acute illness
5% of patients use 42% of bed days. 80% of bed days in hospitals are currently used by emergency beds Some patients are trapped in the “revolving door” 10% of patients account for 55% of bed use 5% of patients account for 42% of bed use Can better CDM be cost effective?
The Kaiser Permanente Triangle – matching the level of CDM provided to the extent of use of acute services 3.5% (42%) case management % disease management % self-management
Prof Kate Lorig. 11 June 2004 At a recent Big Conversation event the Health Secretary, John Reid said "The government intends to roll out its "expert patient" pilots across the country. These involve training lay people to support patients with long- term chronic conditions". By 2008 everybody with a chronic disease who wants an "expert patient" (sic) will have one, he promised. Who are you? I’m your fairy godmother from the USA and I can solve all your problems Supported – “self care” for everyone with a chronic disease 17,000,000 people have a long-term condition 2 1 3

The NHS version of the Wagner Model
biomedical understanding of disability IMPAIRMENT = LESION, (% blockage of arteries, size of infarct, ejection fraction, etc.) DISABILITY = DIFFERENCE FROM WELL PEERS (functional ability, angina, anxiety, depression, work status etc.) Implicit belief - because impairment often causes disability correcting the impairment will correct the disability impairment impairment = the lesion disability disability = difference from age adjusted normal handicap handicap = the additional imposition of society
Impairment does NOT relate to disability: e.g heart failure
Or in Angina the frequency of angina angerr = 0.5p< 0.01 anxietyr = 0.5p< 0.05 Smith, 1984, Brit. J Med Psychol % occlusionr = 0.03 NS Channer, K. 1988, J Royal Soc Med Anxious Anxious depressed (31%) Non Distressed depressed (31%) Non Distressed angio score poor LVF6 11 sub.

disability including work status the extent of the symptoms reported the success or failure of medical treatment or surgery the number of acute medical events and readmissions medical costs Lewin, B. 1997, Journal of Psychosomatic Research 43: aspects of personality anxiety & depression disease specific health beliefs patients’ own attempts to cope (coping actions) A biopsychosocial understanding of disability impairment on its own cannot explain to predict all of these you also need to include
The original CDM for CHD Cardiac rehabilitation 36 randomised trials meta-analysis shows a 20% all cause and 26% reduction in cardiac mortality at 2-5 years. Contrast this with 2% overall improvement in survival from surgery and 0% from PCTA Recent trials show same benefits as early trials despite the introduction of statins thus more than good medical management. Next to Aspirin the most cost effective intervention by a long distance. Menu based Assessment of chronic disease management needs Discuss different options to achieve goals Offering choice of venue reassess results and try again
6 week, home based post MI programme A work book, diaries, record sheets and information 2 audio tapes, advice for family, a stress management course on tape A specially trained ‘Facilitator’ Exercise programme – walking. Secondary prevention – written advice Cognitive behavioural intervention change patients beliefs and attributions self recording self help for psychological problems relaxation and stress management face-to-face session, phone calls or home/clinic visits at week 1, 4, 6 after discharge. Lewin, Lancet, 1992; 339: Self management programme the Heart Manual
Results of the trial show that in Heart Manual rehabilitation patients (n=88) 6 were readmitted to hospital in the first six months, whilst in control patients (n=88) 18 were readmitted to hospital in the first six months and all patients in this group had 1.8 more GP consultations per person than those in the Heart Manual rehabilitation group. heart_disease/CHDtables/The%20Heart%20Manual5.doc

Integrated care programmes for chronically ill patients: a review of systematic reviews. Int J Qual Health Care : Ouwens M, The focus and content of the programmes differed widely. The most common components of integrated care programmes were self- management support and patient education, often combined with structured clinical follow-up and case management; a multidisciplinary patient care team; multidisciplinary clinical pathways and feedback, reminders, and education for professionals. CONCLUSION: Integrated care programmes seemed to have positive effects on the quality of care. However, integrated care programmes have widely varying definitions and components and failure to recognize these variations leads to inappropriate conclusions about the effectiveness of these programmes and to inappropriate application of research results. And the evidence is…?
The Expert patient programme, NHS Direct, Digital TV for patients to better manage their care Set of tools in each health community to create a health and social care system to support people with a chronic problem Payment by results: a means of releasing funds from acute care Incentive scheme to encourage social services to avoid delayed transfer of care Software systems for Registration, Recall, and Review. At risk patient can be identified by NUMBER OF MEDS OR ADMISSIONS New GMS and PMS: rewards good CDM PMS+ and enhanced services to build capacity for new chronic disease services National Service Frameworks: diabetes, CHD, older people, mental health, children, renal disease, long term neurological conditions
disease specific vs generic programmes over-reliance on educational approach vs cognitive-behavioural behaviour change clinical guideline based (mortality) vs patient preference (may not be longevity) CDM provided by need vs CDM provided by consumption individual change (patient) vs social models of change Potential tensions cost saving to NHS vs improving quality of life Potential delivery problems self-management programmes attract the motivated leaving a rump of disenfranchised people establishing multi-disciplinary community based CDM teams may denude secondary care of staff and motivation ‘market led reforms’ – practice level purchasing, advertising for patients, compulsory use of private sector, Foundation Trusts Status may undermine systematic services
Multi-centred RCT vs. Hospital based rehabilitation in 4 centres equal gain on all measures including gain in fitness (2 METs) HM significantly fewer readmissions to hospital at 12 months Jenny Bell, Andrew Coats Recommended by: WHO: UK NSF for CHD: Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network Guideline, UNCLE TC et. al. Initial RCT less anxiety & depression: better quality of life: fewer readmissions to hospital: fewer visits to GP Lewin, Lancet, 1992; 339: The Heart Manual: the evidence base Linden B, 1995: O’Rourke A, 1999: Dalal HM, 2003 Others - Linden B, 1995: O’Rourke A, 1999: Dalal HM, 2003 Ps. I have no financial interest in the HM!
* Use of the Angina Plan * Estimate from uptake per month to Aug 2004
Australian Royal Commission to investigate failure to return to work following uncomplicated MI: interview 400 patient medically & psychologically examined 60% of cases no medical justification 38% of these cases directly due to faulty understanding e.g. “angina is a small heart attack” 22% of cases due to anxiety or depression caused by overly cautious prognosis given to the patient or a relative Return to work following a Heart Attack (MI) Wynn, 1967, Med J Australia, 2,
Health Promotion Promote better lifestyle to avoid chronic illness – education – develop community resources – provide incentives to encourage people to take greater personal responsibility for their health new test to qualify for free bus pass
How to meet the shortfall? 333,000 extra people a year needing cardiac rehabilitation Potential solutions More hospital based group CR programmes Home Based rehabilitation (e.g. Heart Manual) Self-management programmes (e.g. Angina Plan) Lay workers or volunteers (e.g. Bravehart, Internet
