Topic: Determinants of Health
When it comes to chronic illness, there is no standard or “normal” experience. Each person’s illness experience is individual and is influenced by a variety of factors. Factors that can influence the chronic illness experience include underlying health, family status, environment, employment, economics, past experiences, age, gender, culture, and more.
The causes of chronic illness are also many and varied. For example, genetics are a contributor to chronic illness that one cannot change. Nurses can, however, address the social and environmental determinants that contribute to chronic illness.
