This quality standard covers clinical assessment, prioritising and managing healthcare for adults aged 18 years and over with 2 or more long-term health conditions (multimorbidity). At least 1 of these conditions must be a physical health condition. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement. (It does not cover care for people who have multiple mental health problems and no physical health conditions because their care is largely delivered by psychiatric services.)

Improving outcomes:

This quality standard is expected to contribute to improvements in the following outcomes:
• health-related quality of life for adults with multimorbidity
• adults with multimorbidity feeling involved in decisions about their care
• effects of health problems and treatment on day-to-day activities of adults with multimorbidity.
