Self management entails both a positive mental attitude and positive actions that help you get on with living your life the way you want to. It involves knowing when to recognize the limitations that your condition has put in your life and meeting the challenge of living your life to the full in spite of them. The programme was developed in Stanford University in the USA by people with long term conditions for people with long term conditions.
Learning to manage your condition will significantly improve your quality of life. The “Managing the Challenge” of living with a long term condition course will teach you skills to manage all aspects of life with a long term condition.
