MetadataShow full item record
This collection of case studies provides lessons at many levels for students, health professionals, educators, people with chronic conditions, their carers, managers and health administrators. These case studies are written by experienced health professionals and community workers who as students of the self-management course, took the time to record the life stories of people from a variety of backgrounds including Aboriginal, the elderly, mentally ill, adolescents, carers, and people from rural, remote and urban environments. The students have taken a self-management framework to look at a person beyond their diagnosis taking into account their upbringing and life experience to understand the person and how and why they manage their conditions the way they do.
