Self-management of Long-term Conditions
Evaluate self-management principles
For people living with long-term conditions, managing day-to-day life is primarily done on their own, with only a few hours a year being spent with healthcare professionals.
The nurse’s role working in partnership with their patients/clients can ensure people understand their condition and develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to maintain good health and prevent unplanned hospital attendance or admission.
The course will explore the principles of self-care, self-management and key communication skills when working with people.
- How is self-management different to self-care?
- Shared decision making
- Models of self-management
- Self-management programmes
- How do nurses support people to self-manage?
