The management of chronic disease is a key part of all modern medicine and it can be a particular challenge for those caring for the frail elderly, especially when it is found in the acute setting, either incidentally or as a factor contributing to the presenting problem. This symposium covered a range of common chronic conditions that are seen routinely in general practitioner (GP) surgeries and in medical and geriatric assessment units, with the aim of helping clinicians provide confident, evidence-based and humane care to their patients.
