Chronic Disease Management
With the rapidly aging population in Singapore, Research focusing on chronic disease management becomes a vital pillar in SingHealth Polyclinics (SHP). Research provides the platform for healthcare professionals in the institution to constantly review and assess the long term health of these affected patients. It supports SHP's mission to provide better, safer and affordable care for all patients.
SHP is a certified training centre for the discipline of Family Medicine (FM) in Singapore with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). It also provides undergraduate training to medical students from the local medical colleges, student nurses from the polytechnic nursing schools and pharmacy interns in Singapore.
Innovations in Primary Care
SHP has been actively exploring new effective ways to provide quality care for patients and their families, and therefore, we need to develop healthcare innovations to advance the frontier of FM. SHP staff will tap on the expertise of engineers, designers, information technology and info-communication professionals in other academic institutions and partner them to develop innovative and low-cost devices and systems to better serve our patients.
