Long Term Conditions is a comprehensive textbook for all nursing and healthcare students and practitioners that explores the key issues surrounding caring for patients with chronic diseases or long-term conditions.

Divided into three sections, this book explores living with a long-term condition, empowerment, and care management.  Rather than being disease-focused, it looks at key issues and concepts which unify many different long-term conditions, including psychological and social issues that make up a considerable part of living with a long-term condition. Within each of the chapters, issues of policy, culture and ethics are intertwined, and case studies are used throughout, linking the concepts to specific diseases.

Key features:

- A comprehensive textbook on the principles and practice of caring for people with long-term conditions
- User-friendly in style with learning outcomes, further reading, useful websites, and case studies throughout linking to specific conditions
- Moves away from a disease-focused medical model, and takes a needs-led approach
- Uniquely explores the overarching issues of living with one or more long-term conditions
- Focuses on the importance of multi-disciplinary team work and collaborative teamwork in the management of long-term conditions
