Module Subject: Chronic Care Across the Lifespan

Rationale for Part A

The case study analysis forms the background and research leading to the creation of a Patient Information Resource. Through this assessment students will demonstrate an understanding of chronic illness across the lifespan and the impact on the individual, family, and community. Students will also have the opportunity to consider, through the assignment, the needs of culturally diverse, disadvantaged and vulnerable groups with chronic conditions.
