Enhancing Self Care and Self Management

Self care is what people do to care for themselves, their children, other family members and their communities. In relation to health and health care, it is all that people do to maintain health, prevent illness, seek treatment, manage symptoms, treatments and side effects, accomplish recovery and rehabilitation and manage the impact of chronic illness and disability.

Mission Statement:

Our aim is to support self-care and self-management in a variety of settings using person-centred approaches to health and social care. Our robust research aims to engender understanding about the optimum support strategies for self-care and self-management which can manifest at a range of levels including policy, person-focussed interventions and person-provider interaction.

By working together the group aims to:

  • Provide an environment that is supportive, informative and encourages personal growth and collaborations within the group
  • Develop collaborations between researchers, health and social care providers and people with long terms conditions through user involvement in research
  • Generate grant income for the conduct of self care research
  • Publish high quality papers that inform self care practice and research
  • Develop an international reputation for high quality research that reflects the enablement agenda and the key policy directives of self care/self management
