Self management support is essential in providing successful interventions to improve physical and personal outcomes for patients, their caregivers and families. This support is needed to increase their skills and confidence in managing their health problems, including their progress, goal setting and problem-solving. We must emphasize and support their self-reliance in dealing with their roles and the emotional management of their conditions. The RN in the CCTM role recognizes and supports the essential function patients, caregivers and families have in ensuring the health and well-being of the patient and in integrating all roles. The knowledge, skills and attitudes related to this dimension will be discussed in order to identify how the RN in CCTM can provide support for self-management.
The purpose of this learning activity is to enable the learner to demonstrate the primary components of self-management support, including the importance of a comprehensive needs assessment, common strategies for collaborative goal setting, and concepts important to self-management.
