Patients Self Management

Self-management support is about clinicians and healthcare services working in partnership with patients to enable them to better manage their own health.

What it means for people and services

The Health Foundation believes that self management support is most effective when patients who have the knowledge and skills to self manage are supported by clinicians who are skilled and confident in proactively supporting self management, and the systems and processes used by the healthcare service supports and enables both the patient and clinician.
