Description

Chronic conditions have a substantial impact on life and health care. Health systems need to adapt to address these shifting health priorities, while nurses require specialised skills to implement changes and create better client outcomes. Chronic Care Nursing: A Framework for Practice provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the role of the nurse in managing chronic conditions across a variety of settings in Australia and New Zealand. The first part of the book outlines two essential approaches to chronic care management – the Chronic Care Model and the World Health Organization’s Innovative Care for Chronic Conditions Framework – while the second part covers key conditions within chronic care nursing. The second edition has been fully updated to include the latest research, and features new chapters covering self-management and empowerment; living with mental health issues; chronic bowel conditions; and eye, ear and dental health.
