Chronic Illness Posting
Briefly describe a client in your clinical experience who has experienced a debilitating chronic illness or functional decline. What has been the trajectory of the illness? How has the illness affected his or her daily function and quality of life? What nursing interventions to promote function and well-being for the client have been overlooked or neglected?
Community Resources for Chronic Illness Posting
Think of a common chronic health problem for older adults about which you are interested in finding more information. Identify one community agency or on-line resource available to seniors experiencing this health problem. Post a brief descriptive summary of the agency/resource including the URL for the website if applicable. Critique the agency/resource and its website (for example, the adequacy of its services for older adults, the accessibility of the resource, the functionality of the website, the currency and credibility of website information, and other features as relevant). Explain why you would or would not recommend this resource to others.
