Previous case Rebecca
• Mrs Rebecca Brown is a 70 year old indigenous woman experiencing a venous leg ulcer on the inner aspect of the right lower leg. Her husband lives in the dementia unit of a nearby nursing home, so effectively she lives alone.
• Rebecca has smoked five (5) cigarettes a day, long term. She no longer cooks and her only social contact is meals on wheels who visit daily as well as her daughter Jenni who visits once a week.
• A diagnosis of advanced rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has resulted in Rebecca being unable to drive. She is now reliant on the local bus service which stops outside her home. The bus takes her to the local shopping centre, where her doctor is also located.
Her medications are paracetamol which Rebecca takes regularly for pain relief and Adalimumab (Humira), a steroid prescribed to manage her RA.
