Chronic Illness Management - NURS5098

Year - 2018

This unit of study will evaluate the burden and impact of chronic illness on Australian society and the local and international chronic illness models and programs that have been developed. Students will explore the principles of chronic illness management, including relevant evidence-based decision-making processes and practices, the concepts of self-management, continuity of care and coordinated quality care. The National Health Priority Areas will be examined from both population and personal illness experience perspectives. Unit content will be informed by person-centred, interdisciplinary, integrated continuity of care approaches to care and service delivery as these relate to the management of chronic illness.
