Course Description: In this course, students will determine personalized strategies to identify, prevent, and treat the adverse symptoms of acute and chronic illness across diverse populations and settings. Biological and behavioral dynamics of symptoms (e.g., dyspnea, fatigue, impaired sleep/insomnia, pain, depression) that can change the trajectory of chronic illnesses, and how the dynamics can be optimized and maintained to prevent symptom relapse, will be discussed. Various innovative care delivery models (e.g. interdisciplinary, family-based), research methods (e.g. community engaged research, pragmatic trials) and technologies (e.g. eHealth) will be reviewed that can be used to improve symptom management and change the chronic illness trajectory especially among individuals who experience disparate health outcomes.
