Medisister has aimed to bring together both personal and clinical content and video material that can provide nurses with stimulating insights. This includes exciting research about the potential importance of diet in alleviating osteoarthritis symptoms.
With extended life expectancy in the UK population, the issue of arthritis is becoming increasingly pressing, but the condition is not confined to the elderly. This is brought out in a very interesting personal case history about a younger sufferer’s physical and mental approach to managing the disease.
Medisister offers a range of great ideas for nurses on work, leisure and lifestyle. The objectives of Medisister are to:
