Blending discussions of evidence-based practice interventions with deeply personal anecdotes, Larsen illustrates how patients, families, and caregivers can come to terms with the "new normal" of chronic conditions. The perfect reference for students and clinicians alike, it presents the experiences of patients and families through the context of current research, nursing theories, and healthcare systems and policies. Divided into two parts, the first covers the impact of chronic illness on the individual and family while the second explores the impact of the healthcare system.
