Episode Description:

Chronic diseases, long-lasting conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, HIV, asthma that can be controlled but not cured, are a leading cause of death and disability in the U.S. and in total affect some 90 million Americans. Traditional care has focused on the physician’s role in caregiving, but a new model of care is emerging: patient self-management, where patients become their own principal caregivers. What are the principles behind this new model? Will patients embrace it? And what advantages does it bring - to the patient, to the provider, to the health care system?
