What do Donations achieve?
Physicians are often faced with concurrent dilemmas. They know how to best clinically manage patients with single diseases, also by accessing readily available information to support them via the internet and guidelines. Nevertheless, finding the best way to manage coexisting diseases presents a challenge. There is a lack of practical, hands-on guidance for dealing with specific combinations of conditions, such as hypertension AND pain, cardiovascular disease AND depression, total hip replacement AND depression, treated Parkinson's disease AND total hip replacement, among others. Therefore, physicians are faced with complex tasks in considering opposing management avenues, strategies and priorities. The goal of the ICMC is to create guidance to assist physicians in making well-informed decisions about treating complex disease combinations, thereby enhancing patient care.

Donations to the ZAIM ICMC can support the expansion of our research and innovation, and position us as leaders in helping to develop guidance in disease-disease interactions. These contributions play a vital role in addressing some of the most significant challenges of our era.
