Chronic CareStreaming Video - 2008
A chronic condition is a long-term or permanent illness with no known cure. This program provides a framework for dealing with chronic illnesses-such as stroke, emphysema, or rheumatoid arthritis-whether viewers are seeking general knowledge, attending to their own health concerns, or caring for a loved one. The program explores ways for family members and other caregivers to participate in the development of a realistic chronic care plan. Valuable perspectives are included through interviews with healthcare support professionals, private individuals who are responsible for the day-to-day needs of others, and chronically ill patients. Case studies illustrate smart decision-making and home care options.
