Self-Management Support Resources for Providers

Self-Management support is the provision of education and supportive interventions by health care staff to increase patients’ skills and confidence in managing their health problems, including regular assessment of progress and problems, goal setting and problem-solving support. 

Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the highest rates of chronic disease in the country and the rates continue to increase. As a health organization, we aim to encourage self-management support in response to these numbers. We also know that our patients only spend a few hours each year with a health-care provider. They manage their own conditions at home on their own time, so it is important to support and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to do this work outside of our clinic spaces.



For Chronic Disease Self-Management education opportunities for staff please contact the Chronic Disease Self-Management Coordinator, Allison Scott, for information. Email: or call: 709-884-4282.
