Patient Self-Management

Our translational research in this area draws heavily on patient engagement and practice facilitation.

Self-management support is an important component of patient-centered care. Encouraging patients with chronic conditions to manage their health on a daily basis inspires them to learn more about their illness and take an active role in their well-being.

However, self-management support is often the most neglected component of care in the patient-centered medical home.

We strive to translate research on patient self-management support into practice.
