Self-management:- What is the impact of different early intervention-focused approaches to self-management on outcomes for older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions?
- Any explanatory notes
Why this is important:- The Guideline Committee highlighted a lack of evidence on the impact of different approaches to self-management, particularly those aimed at helping older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions to continue living independently for as long as possible. They highlighted the need to understand better the type of interventions and strategies available, and then to evaluate their effectiveness in terms of the impacts on outcomes for older people and their carers.
Future research should compare different approaches to self-management and their impact on social care-related quality of life and wellbeing in addition to physical health, acceptability and accessibility. It should also look at the views, experiences and potential impact on carers.
