This subject contributes to students' understanding of and practice within chronic and complex nursing care. Considering the patient's illness experience, students are encouraged to interrogate the range of therapeutic interventions, the impact of clinical guidelines and policies, varied models of care across acute and primary health care settings, and professional teammate contribution to the delivery of chronic and complex care. This analysis extends across the trajectory of care and the various contexts of care delivery. Case scenarios congruent with clinical placement experiences and coronial evidence are utilised. With a clear focus on care delivery, communication, person-centred care, working in partnership and demonstrating Indigenous cultural respect, this subject challenges students to think innovatively to enable optimal health outcomes for people facing the challenges of chronic and complex illness.
