Managing patient self-care can be a framework in which he or she expresses responsibility for their own health condition.
The research starts from the findings of previous author studies on self-care management, the conclusion of which was that there is a direct link between the person’s responsibility towards his / her own health condition and the therapeutic adherence, especially in the case of chronic patients.
Empowering the patient for self-care when correlated with therapeutic adherence is part of the strategies to create a therapeutic alliance between physician and patient in chronic disease management.
Self-medication in the absence of medical supervision can lead to a worsening of the patient’s health condition and the quality of his life!
