Improving health in people with multimorbidity: a paradigm shift in health care from disease-based curative models to personalized exercise therapy and self-management

Project description

Personalised exercise and self-management against multimorbidity

Multimorbidity affects function and quality of life of patients and puts a costly burden on families and society. Research and healthcare have mostly focused on individual conditions, thereby limiting available, effective treatments of multimorbidity. Exercise has positive effects on improving health in 26 individual chronic conditions. The EU-funded MOBILIZE project intends to develop a personalised exercise and self-management programme supporting individual self-management of multimorbidity. The project relies on interdisciplinary collaboration and builds on available evidence, patient involvement and methodological expertise. A randomised trial will investigate self-reported, physiological and societal impacts and compare the personalised programme with standard single-disease models of treatment. If supported by study findings, a model for implementation of the personalised programme in clinical practice will be developed.
