Self management, also known as self care, includes treatment of minor ailments through to becoming an ‘expert patient’ who partners closely with your healthcare team.
It doesn’t matter what health condition(s) you have. There are things you can do or learn that will improve your wellbeing and overall health.
Get involved, find out about your treatments, share in decisions and take control of the things you can alter.
This section includes care plans, goal sheets, tips, groups, workbooks and resources to help you get started or expand your skills and knowledge further.
Do you suffer from pain and/or a long term condition, then you may like to participate in a self management programme run by Te Tai Tokerau Primary Health Organisation: Find out more here.
