Promoting Self synopsis
It is common for a doctor or health care professional to see a person with a chronichealth condition only a few times a year for a short appointment at the office. However, an individual must live with health status 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
So, who is responsible for managing the state of health? An individual must "manage" his or her condition accurately, while health care professionals can advise on treatment methods or "total management" of the chronichealth condition. Promotion of self-management for chronichealthconditions includes a range of topics related to theories and self-management, scientifically tested interventions, and information to be defined by individuals with specific conditions (or taught by health care professionals).
Data indicate that the vast majority of people in the United States currently have a chronichealth condition, and as community life and health care continue to improve people's lives, more people will be chronically ill. Health systems should be transferred from the acute care model of treatment to the chronic care treatment model, given this trend.
Increased need for scientific development and analysis of formal self-management programs is accompanied by an increase in chronichealthconditions. This book serves the primary purpose of helping to increase self-management understanding and how health care providers can enable individuals with chronichealth conditions to manage themselves.
