Managing Long-term Conditions and Chronic Illness in Primary Care : A Guide to Good Practice Paperback

Description

Effective management of long-term conditions is an essential part of contemporary nursing policy and practice.

Systematic and evidence-based care which takes account of the expert patient and reduces unnecessary hospital admissions is vital to support those with long-term conditions/chronic diseases and those who care for them. Reflecting recent changes in treatment, the nurse's role and the patient journey and including additional content on rehabilitation, palliative care, and non-medical prescribing, this fully updated new edition highlights the key issues in managing long-term conditions.

It provides a practical and accessible guide for nurses and allied health professionals in the primary care environment and covers:- the physical and psychosocial impact of long-term conditions - effective case management - self-management and the expert patient - behavioural change strategies and motivational counselling - telehealth and information technology - nutritional and medication management.

Packed with helpful, clearly written information, Managing Long-term Conditions and Chronic Illness in Primary Care includes case studies, fact boxes and pointers for practice.

It is ideal reading for pre- and post-registration nursing students taking modules on long-term conditions, and will be a valuable companion for pre-registration students on community placements.
