Over its 3-year lifespan the aim of CHRODIS PLUS Joint Action (2017-2020) has been to support EU Member States in overcoming the burden of chronic diseases by promoting policies and practices that have proved successful in the past. Further refinement and EU cross-border sharing of these tested policies and good practices has been the core idea behind this pan-European project.

CHRODIS PLUS has implemented 21 pilot projects aimed at testing tools and good practices for certain chronic diseases, and held 16 policy dialogues (14 national and 2 EU-level ones). It has brought together over 50 partners from 21 European countries.

This conference will illustrate the impact that CHRODIS PLUS has had on public health systems across EU member states over the past 3 years. It will also show how the good practices, models and tools implemented by the project can be tailored to various national and local settings across Europe.

The conference’s presentations and roundtable discussions will be structured around the project’s key focus areas:

Health Promotion & Primary Prevention

An Integrated Multimorbidity Care Model

Fostering Quality Care for People with Chronic Diseases

ICT-based Patient Empowerment

Employment & Chronic Diseases
