Toolkit for Implementing the Chronic Care Model in an Academic Environment

These materials enable implementation of the Chronic Care Model in academic health care settings. The tools and lessons learned from four organizations that participated in the Academic Chronic Care Collaborative are provided here for readers to adapt and replicate in teaching medical residents and improving care for patients with chronic illnesses.

The toolkit was prepared for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) by Delmarva Foundation under Contract No. 290-04-0009, Task 018.
