Preface This is the 18th volume in the Annual Review of Nursing Research (ARNR) series. The course of nursing research is reflected in the eighteen-year time span between the volumes from 1983 through 2000. Nursing research has become targeted, particularly focused on clinical approaches to disease management, prevention of disease, and health promotion. Increasingly, nurse researchers have recognized the importance of the biobehavioral and health policy foundations of effective and efficient nursing interven­ tion. Nursing research also has become more interdisciplinary. These changes are reflected in this volume of ARNR. Volume 18 includes 10 chapters; the theme of the volume is chronic ill­ ness. Chronic illness in general and certain specific chronic diseases, such as heart disease, AIDS, and cancer, have attracted significant attention recently from researchers and policymakers. Common to all chapters in this volume of ARNR is a focus on chronic illness characterized by a pro­ longed and uncertain course, lack of easy resolution, rarity of complete cure, frequent unknown etiology, and mu ltiple risk factors (Brownson , Remington, & Davis, 1998).
