By Professor Barby Singer, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia
For people living with chronic conditions, effective self management of their symptoms, and the physical and psychosocial consequences of their disease, is important to maintain the best possible quality of life. Self management support programs aim to: influence an individual’s ability to cope with their condition and develop skills to address their health and social issues.
This presentation will examine core skills in self management, using an exemplar - the Bridges Self Management Program.
