The National Institute on Aging (NIA) requests R34 and R21 applications
exploring potential interventions to decreasing morbidity, mortality,
and disability associated with multiple, co-occurring diseases in
elderly patients. This initiative supports (1) planning projects for
clinical trials to design and test interventions supported by current
epidemiologic and clinical evidence (R34 applications), and (2)
exploratory studies to establish a scientific basis for future
interventions (R21 applications). The focus of both types of
activities should be on improving health outcomes related to
interactions of multiple co-occurring diseases or conditions in elderly

The coexistence of multiple chronic conditions (multiple morbidity)
is more common among older patients than younger ones and confers a
special burden in its compound effects on overall health status,
functional ability, and quality of life. This initiative builds on our
understanding of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of co-occurring
disease processes to decrease the complex and interacting morbidities
and disabilities associated with multiple coexisting chronic medical
conditions. Its goal is, ultimately, to improve overall health status
of elders with coexisting diseases and to decrease the associated
disabilities through evidence-based medical care that takes into
account their complex interactions.
