Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Self-Management

Self-management in healthcare refers to the active involvement of individuals in managing their own health and well-being. This includes taking steps to prevent illness, manage chronic conditions, and improve overall health.

Self-management strategies can include:

Making lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet and engaging in regular physical activity

Monitoring vital signs and symptoms to track changes

Taking medications as prescribed

Regularly seeing a healthcare provider for check-ups and screenings

Keeping records of important health information

Managing stress through techniques such as meditation, mindfulness, and relaxation

Self-management can be especially important for individuals with chronic conditions, as they may need to take an active role in managing their health to prevent complications and maintain a good quality of life.

However, self-management should always be done in collaboration with a healthcare provider. Healthcare providers can help individuals develop a self-management plan that is tailored to their individual needs and can provide ongoing support and guidance.
