As nurses and health professionals increasingly care for people with chronic diseases and disability, it has never been more important for students to gain the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to provide quality care.

Stories in Chronic Illness & Disability will help you understand the lived experience of the people you look after. Intended as a companion to the Living with Chronic Illness & Disability textbook, also by Esther Chang and Amanda Johnson, it offers real-life case studies of the most common conditions you are likely to encounter in your work.

The stories are accompanied by concise and engaging videos, with related activities to help you reflect on the everyday experiences of people you are caring and adjusting your approach accordingly. This resource is perfect for undergraduate nursing students on clinical placements, right through to registered nurses wanting to enhance their insights and understanding of chronic disease and disability
