A National Survey of Self-Management Support Programmes

The HSE in partnership with the Patient Consultative Forum (established within the HSE in 2010) is currently preparing a Framework for Self-Management Support. Self-management support is acknowledged as a critical component of high quality, effective healthcare for people living with chronic health conditions and their family/carers. The voluntary sector in Ireland provides a broad and diverse range of excellent self-management education programmes and other supportive interventions and services for individuals across the country. 

The HSE and partners are now inviting all patient support organisations and groups to take part in a national survey which aims to map the range of self-management support programmes and services currently available for people living with chronic health conditions and their family/carers across the country. The information generated from this survey will inform and guide the development of a generic framework for self-management support within the HSE, most specifically the National Clinical Care Programmes. 

We would like to invite your organisation to complete this self-management support survey which can be accessed via   https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/selfsupportmanagement
It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. We would also appreciate you forwarding this invitation to the patient support groups and organisations affiliated with your organisation. The survey will finish on the 23rd of February 2012. 
Your support and assistance with this survey is very much appreciated. Please contact Geraldine Quinn E: geraldinemary.quinn@hse.ie T: 086 8187589 if you would like any further information on this self-management support survey.
