Learning outcomes

The course focuses on care about patients with chronic medical problems during stability and instability spans (heart failure, IMA and angina, COPD and asthma). The approach considers the contents and the care ways to activate specific self-help behaviors considering that most of the patients with chronic illness live at home and the hospitalization time is very short. Patient problems will be addressed by considering their evolution, the evaluation of the patient and the choice of care interventions based on the evidence, appropriateness and patient’s needs. The instability/worsening will be approached with an assistance protocol. The disease impact and experience on patient’s and family life will be considered and the rehabilitative and palliative aspects will be explored considering the symptoms in the advanced stage (eg dyspnoea).
