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, chronic pain, 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.
