This paper examines the context of managing a long-term condition within the community environment using appropriate evidence-based literature. It is a case study that focuses upon concordance with compression bandaging in treating venous leg ulceration and preventing ulcer recurrence through a well leg clinic. The challenges of this episode of care and the interventions put in place to improve concordance and promote self-care will be explained and analysed.
