iThe teaching focuses on assisting patients with chronic medical problems undergoing stability and instability (heart failure, IMA and angina, COPD and asthma). The approach considers the contents and welfare modalities to activate specific connecting behaviors whereas the majority of patients with chronic illness live at home and the hospitalization time is very short. The patient's problems will be addressed considering their evolution, the evaluation of the patient reasoned and the choice of assistance interventions based on the evidence, appropriateness and needs of the patient. Instability/flare will be addressed with an assistential protocol. It will be considered the impact and experience of the disease on the life of the patient and on the family and explored the aspects of rehabilitation and palliative compared to the symptoms in the advanced stage (es dyspnea). This teaching is built on the knowledge of the 1st year of Nursingnserire--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
