Chronic Disease Management Summary

Chronic Disease Management: A Practical Guide by Tessa Muncey

With the delivery of care taking place increasingly within community settings it is more important than ever that nurses and other health care professionals working in primary health care teams are able to update and expand their professional knowledge regularly.

In direct response to this development, this handbook is a practical guide to nursing in co-operation with other health care professionals within community settings. It explores the practical aspects of nursing patients with the most commonly encountered chronic conditions including:

Asthma
Diabetes
Hypertension
Epilepsy

In addition, abstract concepts such as assessment, team working and compliance are clearly explained in jargon free language.

Written by a group of practice nurses, specialist practitioners and nurse lecturers, the text is informed by current evidence, theoretical knowledge and a wealth of experience. It is an invaluable resource for student and qualified nurses and others training and working in health care.
