Aims and Objectives

This guide (published in March 2020) enables:

  • increased understanding of what good supported self-management looks like and how it ensures that high quality personalised care tailored to the needs of individuals with long term conditions is commissioned and delivered
  • primary care networks, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authority commissioners, integrated care systems (ICSs) and sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) to have a shared understanding of what supported self-management is and so proactively plan how they work together and deliver effective supported self-management
  • enhanced understanding that health and care professionals have a role in supporting people with long-term conditions to self-manage, alongside more specific interventions including health coaching, self-management education and peer support
  • increased understanding of the opportunities of supported self management, as one of the six components of the comprehensive model for personalised care, to improve health and wellbeing outcomes and NHS sustainability.

The guide provides best practice advice, not statutory guidance.
