Strengthen Your Care for Chronic Conditions:

Evidence-based information on one of the greatest public health issues in the New Millennium

Designed to help family physicians provide the best care to their chronically ill patients, the AAFP’s Chronic Conditions Self-Study Package is an evidence-based, learning solution built to help you hone your clinical skills on a wide-range of family medicine-specific content related to chronic disease care—on a schedule that works best for you—in a variety of formats.

This dynamic, 31-session self-study tool was recorded from the AAFP Chronic Conditions live course. Use it to better prepare for an array of ABFM recertification examination modules (including Child and Adolescent Care, Geriatrics, and Emergent/Urgent Care) while also learning to use best practices in preparing effective treatment plans for condition management and formulating strategies to counsel your patients on behavior modification.
