Supporting Self-Care goes beyond simply supplying patients with information at time of checkout or discharge. It includes a commitment to patient-centered care, providing clear and useful information to patients, helping patients establish goals and plans to live a healthier life, creating a team of clinicians and administrative staff with clearly understood roles and responsibilities, and using office systems to support follow-up and tracking of patients. Managing chronic illness and changing behavior are challenging and take time for everyone involved—providers, patients, and caregivers. Yet, it is often patients themselves who are called on to manage the broad range of factors that contribute to their health. Common sense suggests—and health care experts agree—that people with chronic care needs should receive support to help them manage their health as effectively as possible. Using self-management support in primary care can have a positive effect on the care and health outcomes of people with chronic conditions, as well as provider and patient satisfaction. Helping patients to make good choices and maintain healthy behaviors requires a collaborative relationship between the primary care clinical team and patients and their families. Learning how to incorporate self-management support into practice can support patients in building the skills and confidence they need to lead healthier lives.

Feel welcome to join us for an avid daylong seminar with colleagues and leaders in your industry.
