Product Description

Home/community-based care addresses an issue which is becoming increasingly urgent in South Africa. Millions of people are affected by chronic diseases such as HIV and Aids, cancer and tuberculosis. With rising costs, lack of space and facilities in hospitals, providing care and support for these patients and their families in their own homes is a necessity.

Home/community-based care discusses the roles and responsibilities of community caregivers as members of multidisciplinary health care teams, and the importance of community participation and involvement. It presents a historical perspective, various models and theories, and strategies for effective clinical management. Scenarios and self-evaluation questions are provided.
