Chronic Care Nursing: A Framework for Practice provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the role of the nurse in dealing with chronic conditions across a variety of healthcare settings in Australia and New Zealand. The first part of the book provides a road map for the implementation of chronic care, by outlining how two essential approaches to chronic care management - the Chronic Care Model and the World Health Organization's Innovative Care for Chronic Conditions Framework - can help to improve patient outcomes at both national and international levels. The second part devotes separate chapters to key conditions - including dementia, disability, palliative care and mental health - and highlights the pressing contemporary considerations of each condition. Written by an expert author team of clinicians and academics, this book is full of helpful educational tools such as national competencies, case studies and reflective questions, and is an indispensable resource for students and registered nurses.
