Self-Management in Neuro-Rehabilitation

People with neurological conditions engage in many self-management activities that help to manage their condition, including exercise, taking medication, fatigue management, relaxation etc. Supporting self-management is an important part of health care provision. This workshop will discuss what self-management means, why it is important, what strategies work and, importantly, which don’t. This will help health professionals and those affected with neurological conditions to maximise the benefits of self-management.
