Nursing students and counselors with little to no medical background often find it difficult to understand the plethora of common chronic illnesses and disabilities that their clients experience. That's why we just published Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Chronic Illness and Disability, Fifth Edition by Donna Falvo.
Chronic illness and disability impacts all aspects of clients' lives. This text shows readers how to help their clients build and strengthen personal resources to achieve optimal functioning and full inclusion and participation in their lives.
- Topics include symptoms, diagnoses, treatments, and prognoses
- More emphasis on the International Classification of Functioning Disability, and Health (ICF) as a standard for conceptualizing disability and classifying associated functional status
- Increased coverage of cultural concerns and the impact of cultural issues on the counseling process
