Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focused on relevancy for Canadian readers and completely redesigned for easy reading, this new edition of a vital resource is fully updated with the latest research and information on current practice, medication, legal matters, and specific conditions. The guide is full of tips, suggestions, and strategies to deal with chronic illness and symptoms, such as fatigue, pain, shortness of breath, disability, and depression. It encourages readers to develop individual approaches to setting goals, making decisions, and finding resources and support so that they are able to do the things they want and need. Originally based on a five-year study conducted at Stanford University, this work has grown to include the feedback of medical professionals and people with chronic conditions all over the world. Aimed at teaching people become self-managers of their own illness, the book's one simple goal is to help anyone with a chronic illness to live a productive, healthy life.
