About self management

It is a partnership of a wide range of agencies, unpaid carers and health professionals who view self management as dynamic and reflecting an ethos of empowerment.

Professionals can:

  • encourage self confidence and the capacity for self management
  • support people to have more control of their conditions and their lives
  • promote their efforts to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Self management means:

  • a shared approach to setting goals and problem solving
  • signposting people to the type of support and information they need
  • having a more outcome-focused approach to planning and reviewing an individual’s situation
  • taking account of people’s inherent ability for self-healing and recovery
  • acknowledging that each of us is the expert in our own life circumstances.
