Aim

To increase knowledge and skills to support people living with a long-term condition, including frailty, cancer and heart failure.

Long-term conditions are defined by the Department of Health as "those conditions that cannot, at present, be cured but can be controlled by medication and other therapies. The life of a person with a long-term condition is forever altered - there is no return to normal." (DH 2008)

  • describe what a long-term condition is, and how they can impact on a person's life (including significant others, family and carers)
  • explain different types of long-term conditions
  • describe the importance of effective assessment and advance care planning in long-term conditions, to ensure that people receive personalised, responsive and holistic care
