Noting that chronic disease accounts for about 75% of the high health care costs in the US, Larsen (nursing, University of Wyoming) and Lubkin (emeritus, California State U., Hayward) introduce the definitional, sociological, psychological, organizational, and financial aspects of chronic disease/illness, and the national Healthy People 2010 approach to their prevention and management. In this update of the 2006 edition, contributors treat the impact of the disease on the client and family, and the impact of health professionals and the system. The 24 chapters-- new ones cover models of care, culture, psychosocial adjustment, self-care, health promotion, and symptom management--include case studies, study questions, Internet resources, and references for nurses, social workers, and rehabilitation professionals.
