Principles of Long Term Condition Management - Level 6 - 6NU508
About this module
As identified by the Department of Health document 'Supporting People with Long Term Conditions' (DOH 2005), there is a strong imperative for community based practitioners to reduce the number and frequency of hospital admissions in relation to acute exacerbations of chronic disease.
It is with this in mind that this module will provide the practitioner with the necessary skills and knowledge to empower patients in the management of their condition. It will enable the practitioner to engage with social, political and economic factors that challenge and support new ways of working.
