Chronicity Medicine

Unit

Clinical activity

The Chronicity Medicine Operative Unit, part of the Geriatric Care Unit, was created to provide a personalized and integrated approach to treating elderly patients suffering from chronic pathologies and experiencing exacerbations requiring hospitalization.

The unit offers diagnostic-therapeutic pathways aimed at the management of chronic exacerbated diseases, within complex clinical frameworks caused by comorbidities and polypharmacological regimes that can create in elderly patients a condition of fragility, which can be identified through the use of multidimensional evaluation.

This unit guarantees continuity of care once hospitalization is complete, offering specific outpatient check-ups aimed at preventing new exacerbations, encouraging home treatment and avoiding new hospitalizations.

Research fields

The research activity of the Chronicity Medicine Unit is aimed at studying the conditions that determine the onset of frailty in the elderly patient.
