Class DiscussionDebate: At your table. Institute of Medicine Call to Action(PDF). Please read. Larsen (2017) states that one of the challenges in chronic disease care and management is educating healthcare professionals about caring for those individuals with chronic conditions. There are vast differences between acute short-term and chronic longer term care. In fact, a World Health Organization (WHO) document calls for a transformation of healthcare education to better meet the needs of those individuals with chronic conditions. Do you agree or disagree that healthcare professionals need to possess "core competencies" in order to best provide chronic care to individuals and their families? Provide your rationale/defend your position.
