Living with Chronic Illness and Disability: Principles for Nursing Practice provides the knowledge and skills necessary for nursing and allied health students to provide quality, competent care to people living with a chronic illness or disability.

The text has a strong evidence base, but is founded in reality. It includes practical, useful principles for holistic care, self-management, and a multidisciplinary approach. It also covers a range of issues affecting patients, carers and families, with a focus on empowering individuals as they adjust to the life-changing journey of chronic disease and disability.

Edited by Esther Chang and Amanda Johnson, and written by a multidisciplinary team of expert clinicians and academics, this book will enhance your confidence when caring for people with a range of major and common conditions, including heart disease, stroke, cancer, asthma, diabetes, obesity, dementia, mental illness and palliative care.
