Understanding Disparities in Persons with Multiple Chronic Conditions: Research Approaches and Datasets. 3.3 Literature Review


Abt Associates conducted a review of the peer-reviewed and grey literature related to disparities and multiple chronic conditions over the last 10 years. Of the 751 peer-reviewed articles identified in our targeted PubMed search only 16 (2.1%) pertained to disparities in the MCC population. Our MEDLINE search strategy can be found in Appendix B.
