Abstract

Summary

A significant proportion of the population lives with chronic illness and nurses are likely to come into contact with these patients on a regular basis. However, health professionals do not always recognise or respond supportively to such patients. This article explores some of the negative responses that occur and suggests more appropriate ways to work with this group of patients.
