Study suggests process for self-managing illness is not being used aptly by health professionals 

News Content

A study has found that the processes to allow people to self-manage their own illness are not being used appropriately by health professionals to the benefit of their patients. The research assessed a whole system intervention, which attempted to implement self-management support, led by the health service, for patients with diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or irritable bowel syndrome. Feedback and assessments showed that practices did not use the approach to improve shared decision-making with patients or encourage the take-up of self-management support. The study published in the BMJ, was funded by the NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research and the National Primary Care Research and Development Centre.
