This guide provides an overview of self-management support and the key components for effective implementation.

It is for people with a role where they can implement self-management support, such as commissioners, health care professionals, service managers, people in voluntary or community groups and patient leaders.

The guide will be useful both for those starting their self-management support journey and those building on and improving the support that they already provide.

With the help of short case studies, it highlights how action can create improvements in the health of the whole population, for the lasting benefit of individuals, society and the economy.

The guide has been written for anyone with an interest in people’s health and wellbeing. It will be especially useful to those new to the social determinants of health.
