Nursing students and professionals who work with the chronically ill need to understand not only their clients' conditions but also the impact that those conditions have on daily life. The recently published Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Chronic Illness and Disability, Sixth Edition by Donna Falvo and Beverley E. Holland explores the impact of chronic illness and disability on the capacity to function on a physical, psychological, social, recreational, and vocational level.
Designed to help students and professionals learn basic medical terminology in order to understand symptoms, diagnoses, treatments, and prognoses, it also helps them interpret reports and documents associated with client care. The text also focuses on how to help clients build and strengthen their personal resources so they may achieve optimal functioning and full participation in all aspects of their lives.
Understanding how the various aspects of chronic illness affect both patients and their families is essential for nursing students. The recently published Lubkin's Chronic Illness: Impact and Intervention, Ninth Edition Includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access by Pamala D. Larsen is the only text of its kind to address not only the physical aspects, but also the psychosocial issues that affect individuals and families living with chronic disease. What's more, the author lends a personal perspective by chronicling throughout the text her own experiences with her husband's terminal illness.
