Complex Care in Nursing
Working with people living with complex health needs is an everyday part of the nursing role. It requires an understanding of different conditions and comorbidities, of the societal and political factors that influence them and of the health and social care services available to manage them. This book joins the dots between the biological, social, and psychological drivers that add complexity to care. From knowledge of key concepts like polypharmacy and the social and political determinants of health, to practical skills in assessment and shared decision making, this book will provide you with a holistic understanding of complex care.
