Here, a 78 year old male with type two diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and high cholesterol presented for a wound that did not heal properly.

From the Paper:"Case Management and the Elderly: Case management is rapidly becoming a requirement for the growing population of elderly individuals who experience a chronic or debilitating health issue. This paper presents a comprehensive assessment of a 78 year old male diabetic patient who presented to a community clinic setting for problems related to a wound that was not healing properly and discusses the various assessments used and the role of case management. The case presentation will incorporate the comprehensive nature of health assessment requirements for the elderly consistent with the holistic nature of the Neumann Systems Model. Based on the case presentation, the need for a case manager and the development of a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals in the community health setting are required. Plans for follow-up and continuity of care are provided as are schedules and type of monitoring and future evaluations."
