Various aspects of self‐management in chronic illness are reviewed, focusing on chronic kidney disease, to facilitate patient–provider collaboration, improve patient care with increased patient and staff satisfaction, and may ultimately result in better clinical outcomes and enhanced quality of life for both the patients and their families.
Using a self-care management tool to improve self-care and quality of life in patients with congestive heart failure
TLDR
Results for the experimental group showed that the CHF patient’s perceptions about self-care management with its components were improved before and after use of the developed instructional tool in the second and third assessments, proving that the self-Care management tool may be effective as a self-learning reference among Egyptian CHF patients.
Self-Management Skills in Chronic Disease Management
TLDR
The findings from the current review suggest that low HL may affect behaviors necessary for the development of self-management skills, and HL-sensitive, self- management interventions ought to be devised and implemented.
The neglected importance of hope in self-management programs – a call for action
TLDR
There is a large body of literature on self-management as the desired end-state for those completing a chronic disease patient education program including research which suggests that patient empowerment and ‘efficacyenhancing strategies’, promoted in many education programs, are key enabling factors for achieving higher levels of patient self- management.

The Role of Empowerment in the Management of Chronic Diseases in the Elderly

Asthma self-management: do patient education programs always have an impact?
TLDR
Two factors, selection of the patient population and historical changes in asthma treatment, most likely contributed to the lack of impact of the self-management programs and improved standards for usual care due to both factors meant the opportunity to effect patient outcomes was substantially reduced.
Effects of self-care education on the health status of inner-city patients with osteoarthritis of the knee.
