Evaluating Education and Training for Multiple Chronic Conditions for the Healthcare Workforce

Under a contract with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Abt Associates identified existing multiple chronic conditions (MCCs) education and training materials available to the healthcare.

Using the evaluation findings, Abt developed a framework, curricula, and competencies for improving education and training of healthcare professionals who provide care and services to people with MCCs.
The Abt team, which included the MacColl Center for Healthcare Innovation, worked from September 2013 to March 2015 to:
  • Conducted a review of the literature and interviews with subject matter experts to identify and evaluate education and training materials for key healthcare workforce professions on improving the care of persons with MCC;
  • Developed an MCC training and education framework that can be used within specific healthcare professions and across healthcare professions. The framework uses a cross-disciplinary approach that includes health professionals learning about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improved MCC patient health outcomes; and
  • Used the evaluation findings and the framework to collaborate with relevant stakeholders in developing a model MCC curricula and competencies.
