Training staff to empower people with long-term conditions to undertake self care activities



Training staff to empower people with long-term conditions to undertake self care activities



Nursing Times 106(9): 14-16



Self care can help people with long-term conditions take control of their lives. However, their interest and ability to engage with it may fluctuate over the course of an illness and many need support to undertake self care activities. A team of community matrons in NHS South of Tyne and Wear helped to develop and pilot an e-learning tool for staff, to remind them of the importance of self care and give advice on ways to support patients. The tool has since been rolled out to all staff groups.
