ERS Research Reminar: Complexity of patients with multiple chronic diseases, Rome 2007

About
Research Seminars gather a small number (20 to 100) of well-established and preferably young investigators to address scientific topics in depth and help break new ground. Research Seminars take place over two days in easy-to-reach European cities. They are scientific Seminars involving recently published work and research in progress. Participation is fully supported by the budget granted by the ERS.

Background

Chronic diseases represent a huge proportion of human illness. They include cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes.

The main objectives of this Research Seminar are to discuss the:

  • burden of complex chronic co-morbidities and
  • relationship between markers of organ and systemic inflammation 

The main educational aims are to:

  • define the most important and frequent co-morbidities in elderly patients, particularly those with COPD
  • provide updated information on the most common chronic disease, ie  coronary and/or peripheral arterial diseases, systemic arterial hypertension, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • emphasise the limitations of single disease-oriented clinical practice guidelines, and the need for a more comprehensive "internistic" approach to patients with multiple chronic co-morbidities
  • suggest that chronic inflammation might represent the common pathogenetic link between the different chronic diseases present in the elderly
