Read the Case Study-A 48 year old man with morbid obesity, poorly controlled diabetes type 2, sleep apnoea and obesity ventilation syndrome
Multiple factors influence the care of patients with chronic conditions. As a Primary Heath Care nurse, it is important that care given is prioritised based on clinical and patient needs. Prioritisation of the patient needs for care is integral to daily nursing practice. This requires integrating and collaborating different aspects of patient needs in order to maximise care activities and the effectiveness of nursing interventions. This case study is designed to demonstrate the integration of various principles of managing care of patients with chronic conditions. You will be expected to analyse the case scenario, identify the care needs and from the list of identified needs discuss two complex care priorities.
