The effectiveness of self-management support interventions for men with long-term conditions: a systematic review and meta-analysis
This is the first review to examine the moderating effect of sex in self-management support interventions. A substantial sample frame of 1887 potentially relevant studies (identified via 116 Cochrane reviews) were screened for eligibility against the inclusion criteria.
This report gives the findings from an independent evaluation of phase 1 of the Health Foundation's Co-creating Health programme, which worked with eight sites to explore how to implement self-management support. The evaluation provides insights into what worked and the further challenges health systems need to address to support people to develop confidence in managing their long-term conditions themselves.
This study contributes to the understanding of the challenges of self-managing diabetes. It concludes that self-management of diabetes is physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially demanding. Non-engagement with self-management may make sense in the context of low personal resources (e.g. health literacy, resilience) and overwhelming personal, family and social circumstances.
