This book explores the notion of "Managing Long Term Conditions"
(MLTC) by focusing on aspects of clinical and community practice
both for people requiring occasional programmes and for those with
more complex needs necessitating a range of care provision.
However, care provided for people living with long term conditions
consists not only of that provided by health and social care
professionals, but also care provided by friends and family, the
voluntary sector, faith and charitable organizations and also
self-care by the people who live with long term conditions. An
important aspect for consideration in MLTC, therefore, lies in the
context of self-help and lay care, and this book includes the
concept of "patient as expert."
The focus of "Managing Long Term Conditions" is on the social
model of care rather than the dominant medical model as the modern
healthcare system has come to recognize the value of social
determinants of health in contributing to the long term health
outcomes of the population.
Providing coverage of each branch of healthcare--adult,
children, mental health and learning disabilities--this book is
essential reading for both students and practitioners in community
nursing and across healthcare in general.
