Aims/Description: This Unit is designed to enable students to further develop their nursing skills and professional values whilst focussing on people with long term and complex needs. They will seek to understand the unique needs and experiences of adults and their families living with long term conditions, and the significance of multi-agency collaboration across the health and social care sectors. This will be achieved by drawing the students' attention to current policy, practice and research. In addition psychological, physiological and sociological perspectives are explored. The unit will develop understanding of the importance of user/ carer expertise in health care decision making.
