Abstract

Anxiety disorders are common illnesses for patients that can significantly impact quality of life. These conditions are complicated and advanced by chronic illness. It can be a challenge not only for patients to live with but also for providers to evaluate and treat. Several tools exist to support clinicians in their work to manage and improve patient symptoms and reduce the burden of the disease. While there are numerous treatment modalities that are shown to help control and alleviate symptoms, close monitoring and evaluation are essential for improved patient outcomes and proper use of available resources.
