Doubts About the National Agenda of Self-Managing Chronic Conditions
Expecting that a large majority of the US population will take responsibility for their health and behavior to achieve self-management is a huge financial and psychological gamble.
You know you have passed over some invisible line when you begin to take pride in your ability to pour out the exact number of pills from each bottle that your “Day-Evening-Nite” pill container requires. Similar accomplishments are only the first chapter of our country’s insinuated goal that we all become empowered “self-managers” of our health, thereby putting less of a financial burden on healthcare providers and insurance companies, especially Medicare. People who reach the self-management level for their own care and the prevention of even worse maladies didn’t start out that way. Rather, they have been on a journey acquiring both knowledge and also fundamental skills and values to support that knowledge.
