The Future of Self Management: A Four Nations Summit

4 Nations Report front cover

Read our learning report from the Self Management Four Nations Summit which took place on Monday 2nd October 2017.

What can collaboration across the UK’s four health and social care systems teach us about leading change in self management?

As we approach the tenth anniversary of Gaun Yersel, A Self Management Strategy for Scotland, the ALLIANCE hosted a ‘four nations’ summit during Self Management Week 2017 to consider these questions with delegates from across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Defined as “supporting people living with long term conditions to live and die well on their terms”, self management empowers people and unpaid carers to be leading partners in managing their health and wellbeing.

This report shares the learning from the summit – the ideas that were shared, where progress has been made in developing the self management agenda as well as the obstacles faced.
