Choose a chronic disease.

Research the personal impact on a patient living with the chosen chronic disease. You may choose to interview a current patient or find patient impact videos on the internet. In selecting information, be sure your source is informational not promoting a product or service.

? social, financial, and personal effects
? how the patient learned about their disease (nurse, support group, doctors)
? educational experience of the patient while learning about their chronic disease
? change motivators the patient used or why change had not occurred

Recommend theories of motivation and learning for the management of patients with this chronic disease in light of the information you have gathered.
