 en Interprofessional Care for Chronic Diseases of Lifestyle
Useh, Ushotanefe & Akindele, Mukadas O.


Public health and other healthcare practitioners are facing the challenges that arise from chronic diseases of lifestyle. Astronomical increase in the prevalence and burden of chronic non-communicable diseases in the high and low/medium income countries has been reported in literatures. Reducing the burden of chronic diseases of lifestyles requires steps that will be all encompassing. Though, a variety of effective lifestyle modifications/interventions for chronic diseases of lifestyles exist, the primary aim of each of them is to reduce the burden of chronic diseases of lifestyle, which can be achieved through different ways. This review was carried out to highlight the common inter-professional ground in the prevention and management of chronic diseases of lifestyle with special focus on physiotherapy. There have been little or no studies on joint efforts of healthcare providers in preventing and managing chronic diseases of lifestyle. Also, there is a need to take into consideration social and cultural values and differences of persons that might affect chronic diseases of lifestyle while planning the interventions.
