Self management support resource centre [new UK website] – The Health Foundation – 14 November 2011

New online resource launched to support self management 

“An online self management support resource centre has been launched by the Health Foundation for commissioners, providers and patients to help them develop self management support within local health economies.

The new digital resource shares important learning about self management from the Health Foundation’s £7.5 million Co-creating Health programme which was established to understand how best to put self management support at the heart of care for people with long term conditions.

Jo Bibby, Director of Improvement Programmes at the Health Foundation said, ‘There is compelling evidence that, for people with long term conditions, self management support reduces anxiety and depression; facilitates a better quality of life and enables people to feel more in control of their health’.

The resource centre provides information and practical resources that can be adopted and adapted locally to enable services and health professionals to develop their own self management support programmes. These are based on the Co-creating Health evidence-based model for self management support that identifies people with long term conditions, health professionals and organisational systems and processes as key components.”
