Recommendations were compiled towards the production of evidence-based guidelines for the management of inequality and co-morbidity in the community. This would be linked to a health information system using telecare technology and Pervasive Computing, including network and sensors for managing co-morbidity and complexities in the community.

Legal and Ethical Issues:

All legal and ethical issues in the subject areas were dealt with.   The new co-morbidity Database would be available to clinicians worldwide.

Study Population:

Both primary and secondary care clinicians participated in the various studies and programmes.


This informed the development of Evidence-based Guidelines for managing inequality and co-morbidity in the various countries involved in the project.  This would be the subject of a future project in this area.


The results and findings of the various studies would be disseminated via peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed articles, books, book chapters, periodicals, guides, audio devices and the use of new technology from 2016.
