Long-Term Conditions: Challenges in Health & Social Care
Cathy E Lloyd, Tom Heller
SAGE, Nov 30, 2011 - Medical - 214 pages
Long-Term Conditions explores the complex issues surrounding the experience of long-term illness and the enormous pressure this puts on individuals, their families and careers and on health and social care services. The perspectives of each of these groups are voiced within this book, with chapters written by people who use health and social care services, careers, policy-makers and practitioners. Using a variety of research methods to get to the heart of the matter, the book probes assumptions about the experience of long-term poor health and what constitutes good care. Its aim is to challenge readers to think critically about existing policy and provision and to inspire change based on sound evidence and a drive towards greater multi-professional working.
