This text provides innovative strategies for teaching whole person care of chronic illness in both classroom and clinical settings. Taking a narrative approach, the authors show how medical-surgical and psychiatric-mental health nursing can be creatively integrated to promote student understanding of the complexity of working with clients and families experiencing long-term health challenges. The text is filled with "how to" information along with discussion of pedogogical concerns related to chronic illness management. Valuable features include: case examples, an extensive listing of films and videos depicting the lives of those living with chronic illness for use in the classroom, and sample forms for student and teacher use.
