[Editorial] Making more of multimorbidity: an emerging priority

Multimorbidity would seem a relatively straightforward term, denoting multiple medical conditions within a single patient. Yet an Academy of Medical Sciences report, Multimorbidity: a priority for global health research, published in April, 2018, suggests that competing definitions in the medical literature have impeded research and improvements in patient care. The report recommends that a path forward must include a standardised definition that can be incorporated into research agendas to identify the evidence gaps and to inform the organisation of health-care systems globally.
