Episode 131: Multimorbidity: a challenge for EBM and Mike and James

In episode 131, Mike and James have invited Denise Campbell-Scherer into the podcast world to help us discuss the issue of multimorbidity when it comes to guidelines and chronic medical conditions. We talk about how to think about this issue when it comes to research and practice and we very quickly realise it is tricky and it demands that clinicians need to realise that guidelines are system-based and not patient specific focussed. At the end we decide that we need to take care of patients and not disease states.
