Managing Long-term Conditions and Chronic Illness in Primary Care (Second edition)

This revised second edition is relevant to modern nursing practice, enabling holistic care for patients with long-term conditions and chronic illnesses.

Reflecting changes in nursing roles and patient journeys, the text now has chapters on rehabilitation, palliative care and non-medical prescribing.

It sets out the social and political climate in the UK, and considers their impact on those with long-term conditions and chronic illnesses.

The chapters move from guidance on identifying relevant patients to considering effective management, finding high quality evidence and then applying it in practice. A chapter on self-management offers practical guidance on health behaviour and motivational interviewing.

Case scenarios encourage reflective application of what is covered in each section, while the final chapter addresses nutritional and medication management, issues that will become increasingly significant as the population continues to age.

Each chapter is clearly laid out, with plenty of subheadings and figures.

This highly readable resource offers a wealth of practical guidance in an easily accessible format.
