Chronic Disease

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases are defined broadly as conditions that last one year or more and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both. Among the most common chronic diseases are chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, certain cancers, and some types of liver disease. While some chronic disease cannot be reversed, many chronic diseases can be prevented entirely by modifying certain lifestyle habits.

VA health services research into chronic disease encompasses many aspects of care including access, delivery, prevention, and quality of life.
