Coordinated Chronic Disease
Nationally, public health organizations are considering four practice domains to a coordinated approach to chronic disease prevention and health promotion. Here you will find information regarding domain definitions, practice examples, professional education, and resources. .
1: Epidemiology and Surveillance
Gather, analyze, and disseminate data and
information and conduct evaluation to inform, prioritize, deliver, and monitor
programs and population health.
Domain 2: Environmental Approaches
Promote health and support and reinforce
healthful behaviors (statewide in schools, worksites, and communities).
3: Health Care Systems
Improve the effective delivery and use of
clinical and other preventive services in order to prevent disease, detect
diseases early, and reduce or eliminate risk factors and mitigate or manage complications.
4: Community-Clinical Linkages
Ensure that communities support and clinics refer patients
to programs that improve management of chronic conditions. Such interventions
ensure those with or at high risk for chronic diseases have access to quality
community resources to best manage their conditions or disease risk.
