Managing the patient’s self-care can be a framework in which he or she expresses responsibility for their own health condition. The present research starts from the hypothesis that there is a tendency in the Romanian population, it also manifests to young people with an average level of education and easy access to information for self-care, but this is done by avoiding the specialized medical consultation, the information being often obtained online or from members of the younger entourage a therapeutic adherence. As regards mistrust in allopathic medicine, this, although it exists, does little to the extent of therapeutic adherence. Objective factors such as the relative lack of specialist medical services or difficult access, in other words of resource allocation in general as part of the social responsibility of the state (Frunză, 2011), are not a major impediment to targeting young people and family members to appropriate specialist medical services. The neglect of one’s own health condition, when it is conscious, is due to laziness and lack of care (responsibility). Optimism (perhaps exaggerated) about current health care and its possible evolution is one of the most important factors in the decision to postpone medical examinations and therapeutic non-adherence in the case of mild symptoms.
