Multimorbidity the presence of more than one long-term condition in an individual – is a significant global issue. With the number of patients with more than one long-term condition rising exponentially, our health system is facing growing pressure to treat increasingly complex patients with finite and already stretched resources. From the patient’s perspective, living with more than one long-term condition can be incredibly difficult – particularly when it comes to navigating a health system primarily designed to deal with individual conditions in silo.

This research symposium will bring together researchers from the University of Otago, Wellington and elsewhere to describe the multimorbidity burden on patients and the health system, and discuss possible solutions for its future management and control.
