Posted self-management toolkit reduced service use
Small group and online self-management education programmes have been found to engage and motivate people, but not everyone wants or is able to take part in this type of education. In the US, a box of self-management educational resources was posted to people with long-term conditions. The toolkit reportedly helped people develop relationships with professionals, improved health and reduced use of health services. This may be a relatively simple and inexpensive way to help people self-manage their conditions.
